After half a century of working in old oriental rugs, our journey has been unforgettable and unimagined at the outset. Interaction with clients is a two-way process and it suffices say that whilst a stated aim is to impart knowledge in our specialised area, we have enjoyed equally the benefit of the wisdom and knowledge of our clients. Many are still close friends and clients from the 1970s.
We have placed many great rugs, textiles and tribal art in our most prominent public institutions including the National Gallery of Victoria, the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra and in Sydney, the Art Gallery of NSW and the Powerhouse Museum.
