When you’ve done one thing as long as I’ve been in the rug business, and if you’re paying attention, you learn a lot. I’ve wanted a forum to share my expertise and experience for a long time. A blog directed at designers seems like the perfect fit. My passion is rugs. Little did I know that it would grow to be such a huge part of my life when we started this business over 40 years ago. But I was in the right place at the right time and I’m proud to say I took advantage of every opportunity to learn that presented itself. Some of my mentors are some of the premier names in hand woven rugs. Each one graciously passed on his passion and knowledge to me. Now it’s my turn to pass it on to you. It is my hope that some of the passion will pass on to you and that it will help you become a more knowledgeable designer. Believing someone has learned from me will be my legacy. One of which I can be proud.
