We offer many services including In-House Decorating Advice where our staff come out, at your convenience, to your home or office and take exact measurements and specifications of the carpets required. We then select a number of suitable pieces based on your preferences and present these to you for your consideration. The rugs are then left at your home on approval while you make your final decisions. 

We also offer Exchange Guarantees of between 1 and 3 years, where if during that time you redecorate or your tastes change, you are welcome to exchange your undamaged rug for one you prefer. 

Our Lifetime Guarantee on the production of all the handmade rugs we sell means that we can guarantee the rug you purchase will not fall apart in your lifetime. In addition we also provide Valuations, Certificates of Authenticity and a complete Cleaning and Restoration Service.
