Sarkis Tatosian and Mesrop Darian of Oscar Isberian Rugs have returned from their trip to Domotex. Domotex is the world’s largest trade show for rugs and carpeting. It is located at the Hanover Fairgrounds in Hanover, Germany. Close to 1,500 exhibitors attended the show. I can’t say we visited all of them, but we saw many. The show features many different types of rugs such as valuable antique carpets, high quality new rugs, carpeting, machine woven rugs, etc… The range of colors and designs are endless from traditional to ultra modern, there is something for everyone. The creativity and innovation is inspiring. Each year there are awards for the best rugs and that is something we look forward to. It is great to see the best of the best in competition. We met some new suppliers and we placed orders for some beautiful new products. It was good to meet with some of our existing suppliers. We were able to see their new productions and collaborate on what is the trend for the future. Even though we spent most of the time indoors, the weather was very agreeable, it was in the mid 40’s. The weather in Chicago right now is nearing zero!! It’s great to be home.
