  • Good +

    This is a quality rug with reasonable durability.  A rug rated as “Good” has a life expectancy of 20-30 years with routine maintenance and proper care.  The rug is made from strong wool with a little dryness and shedding may occur.  In the case of a hand-knotted rug, the pile is thick, but not very dense.  The design of this rug is not especially fine or intricate, and the weave is not as tight as that of a higher quality rug.  A rug of this quality will have the greatest longevity in a light use room or may be used in a high traffic area with the expectation of repairing or replacing the rug in 10-15 years.

  • Very Good +

    This is a high quality rug with a life expectancy of 40-50 years when routine maintenance and proper care are given.  The rug has soft wool and a tight weave.  This rug will either shed very little or not at all.  The yarn pile of a hand-knotted rug rated “Very Good” has sufficient thickness and density so that fingertips will not be able to penetrate down to the foundation of the rug when pressure is applied.  The design of this rug may not be quite as beautiful or interesting as a rug rated “Very Good+” in our store. 

  • Very Good+ +

    When it comes to new rugs, a rug rated “Very Good+” is among the highest quality on the market today.  The life expectancy of this rug, with routine maintenance and proper care, is over 50 years.  The wool in this rug is the softest and most lustrous - it is rich with lanolin.  The pile of a hand-knotted rug with this rating is exceptionally thick, dense, and springy.  The rug will not shed.   A “Very Good+” rug gets top marks for artistic design, beautiful and balanced coloring; the overall look is harmonious and distinctive. 

  • Excellent +

    Most of our semi-antique and antique rugs fall into this quality category.  These rugs are exemplary for their type and style:  they have a fine appearance and are made with high quality materials by experienced, careful weavers.  Rugs rated “Excellent” are in near mint condition and some have small repairs or signs of wear which are difficult to detect.

  • Excellent+ +

    This is the highest rating that we give to our semi-antique and antique rugs.  These rugs fall within the top 5% of all handmade, imported rugs available on the market today.  Many are in virtually pristine condition and have retained their luster through the passing of many years.  “Excellent+” rugs have been selected for their beauty, rarity, workmanship, and the quality of their wool. Suitable for the collector, these rugs may be categorized as textile “fine art.”  In a word, they are extraordinary.

We respectfully request your patience during this time.

Pick Up and Delivery

For cleaning and restoration requests, we will pick up and deliver within 150 miles of Highland Park, IL; however, there will be a charge for any trip in excess of 30 miles.

Warranty

All handmade rugs have some variations: these variations are considered to be indicators of beauty and character. Whenever possible, we have noted areas of wear or repairs that have been made to the semi-antique and antique rugs on our site. Rugs are thoroughly inspected before we bring them into inventory and are again inspected before being sent to our customers. We want you to be highly pleased by the quality and condition of the rugs that you have purchased from us. New rugs are warranted against defects in their construction for up to 1 year from the date of purchase.

Return/Exchange Policy

Returns

Contact us prior to making any return.
Telephone: (847) 432-8100
E-mail: Please use the contact form on our website

Rugs may be returned for a refund less shipping charges within 14 days of receiving them. In order to receive a refund, rugs must be returned to us in the same condition that we sent them to you. When returning a rug for a refund, we will send you a prepaid shipping label and packaging. Once we have received and checked returned items, we will issue a refund in the same method as payment was received less shipping and insurance.

Return shipping for rugs sent to Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico will incur a surcharge beyond the standard domestic shipping rate.

When packaging your rug for return, please include a copy of your invoice along with an explanation for the return.

Exchanges

Contact us prior to making any exchange:
Telephone (847) 432-8100
E-mail: Please use the contact form on our website

You have up to 30 days from the date that your rug is received to decide if you would like to keep it or exchange it for another rug from our stock. In order to exchange a rug, the rug must be returned to us in the same condition that we sent it to you. When you wish to return a rug for an exchange, we will send you a prepaid shipping label and packaging. When packaging your rug for exchange, include a copy of your invoice along with an explanation for the exchange. There will be no fee for the first exchange on any rug order. Fees for subsequent exchanges will be charged in accordance with the shipping rates for rug returns.

Packaging for Shipping

When sending a rug to us, we suggest the following packaging:

Rugs up to 8' x 10' may be rolled and wrapped in brown paper before being wrapped in plastic. If you don't have brown paper, two layers of plastic will suffice. Plastic must be a heavy weight. If you need paper or plastic for wrapping, we can send it to you. The outer wrap should be securely fastened with packing tape or plastic zip ties.

Here are photos showing the packaging of a rug up to 8' x 10'. (Use of a cardboard tube is not required.)

Rugs larger than 8' x 10' should be folded along their length and then rolled prior to wrapping. Hand-knotted rugs should be folded with the pile facing out. This may protect the foundation if the rug is old, dry, or very dirty. Once the rug is folded with the back sides together and the pile facing out, roll and wrap the rug as described in the previous paragraph. When tying the rug, we recommend using strips of fabric rather than twine or rope in order to avoid crushing the pile.

Here are photos showing how to fold and roll a rug larger than 8' x 10'.

Appraisals

Written appraisals appropriate for insurance purposes may only be provided when we are able to physically inspect the customer’s rugs. An appraisal is based on factors like the age of the rug, the overall condition of the rug, and the appearance of the rug. The charge for a written appraisal is $50.00 for the first rug and $25.00 for each additional rug.

Trade-In Policy

On an individual basis, we will assess rugs for their trade-in eligibility. If your rug has the potential to be resold in our store, we will quote you a value for the rug. This value may be applied towards the purchase of another rug from our inventory. In order to assess a rug that a customer wishes to trade in, we must be able to inspect it in our store.

Requests and Estimates for Services

If you would like to request an appraisal, rug cleaning, or other restoration services, please complete the form on our Customer Service page. Prices for most of the maintenance and restoration services that we perform can be found in the Rug Restoration section of this website.

All restoration work requested through our website must be approved in writing and a 50% deposit may be required in order to begin the work. We respectfully request that the balance of all restoration work is paid for within two weeks of completion; we must receive payment in full before your rugs will be returned.
