*Real antique oriental carpets are fundamentally different from mass-produced goods knotted in manufactories. Each piece is hand-knotted and unique! Irregularities in shape, color or material, or repaired and worn areas are no reason for complaint. These properties make every single carpet a collector's item and underline the authenticity of the goods.
