To describe this extensive collection of oriental handmade carpets, kilims and collectibles as huge, which of course it is, is almost a detraction from what I would have to say is its most singular feature - given the New Zealand context and taken as a whole - it is absolutely unique.

It not only includes pieces from my extensive travels over the years, but also, and of greater importance to me these days, the remarkable carpets from my Cultural Survival Programme.

With thousands of carpets in stock it is impossible to catalogue every piece for the website. However I have created this portfolio which includes some of my all-time favourites from the collection. Take it as an indication only, some of the pieces may have already been sold, but the portfolio does give an idea of how comprehensive this continually evolving collection really is.

SIMPLY SCROLL DOWN OR CLICK ON ANY RUG FOR AN ENLARGED VIEW. THEN CLICK ON THE LEFT OR RIGHT OF THE IMAGE TO SCROLL THROUGH THE COLLECTION.
