Sevak Alaverdyan and I have just returned from a productive and fun trip to India. We started in Varanasi, the world’s oldest living city and the largest rug weaving center in India. The Export Council of India hosted a show there featuring some of the finest rug manufacturers in the country. It was a rewarding opportunity for us to visit with existing suppliers and to meet new ones.
We were fortunate to see many beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces from which we selected a strong grouping to bring home to Oscar Isberian customers. We also saw a variety of intriguing designs that we ordered for future delivery.
Sevak and I then traveled to Jaipur, another major rug weaving center. We visited one of our largest suppliers and, as usual, we were amazed at the beauty of his collection of rugs. We selected many!!
All in all, it was a successful trip focusing more on quality than quantity. You’re going to love what you see! Stay tuned. Sark~
