My sister who lives in Nova Scotia found Tabrizi Rugs and told us about it. She is very knowledgeable about Persian rugs so we started looking on their sites. Eventually, we bought a rare Afghan war rug, a largish area rug for the living room and a small office rug. Each of them is hand knotted with wool. The craftsmanship is superlative and the shipping (across the country) was free. Plus the prices are so much more reasonable than in Vancouver. And frankly the selection is much bigger.
