Labor of love

As Valentine’s Day approaches, we’re reflecting on one of our greatest loves: oriental rugs.

Oriental rugs can take days, months, or even years to make. Averaging 10,000 to 14,000 Turkish or Persian knots per person, a team of skilled weavers can only complete one or two inches of carpet per day. Add in an intricate design, different dyes and textures, an oriental hand-woven rug is truly a labor of love.

Collecting thousands of wall-to-wall carpets and rugs over the years, David Tiftickjian and Sons’ love for rugs has kept the family business thriving for more than 100 years. Our enormous collections holds some of the most intricate designs from some of the most skilled rug weavers. This includes Asian and Middle Eastern rugs from China, India, Pakistan, Egypt, Turkey, Iran, Tibet and Afghanistan. Let us share our love and expertise of rugs with you. Visit our rug experts today.
