Indian Moth Damaged Rugs For Sale in Los Angeles
Few days ago, a couple came into our rug gallery and said they wanted to sell few Indian rugs which were in storage for 15 years. I told them that the rugs would be most likely damaged by moth, but they did not agree and mentioned that the rugs were in tight bales and bundles. They returned in a few days with a big tow truck with 6 big Indian rugs. One of the bales was opened and I looked at the rug and showed them the moths, eggs and the larvae.
I could not buy the rugs, nor could I let the rugs in our store even for cleaning or possible repair. How could anybody leave rugs in storage for 15 years without opening them, cleaning them and taking care of them??
