General Rug Info: 

We suggest readers try our Oriental Rug Style Guide.  There are links here to eBay, however, it's a good idea to run past us some of your selections before purchasing: Often sellers may use incorrect names of rugs, exaggerate age, or otherwise inflate "suggested retail prices" and qualities.  Here are some suggested readings below, for more info take a look at our Site Map!
