Bokhara Pakistan Rug, Antique Persian Senneh Rug

It was Sunday today and our rug gallery was a mess. I had a long day at the Bowers Museum yesterday. We brought back our rugs and other stuff we had taken for that one-day event and put them in the store without organizing them. While I was busy putting everything back at its place, a customer who had called me in the morning to make sure I would be in, stopped by and brought in a 9 x 12 feet Pakistani Bokhara which needed cleaning and selvages repair. She said they were in the process of remodeling their home therefore are not sure if they would keep the rug or not. They asked me to first send the rug for cleaning before they know if they would want the repair.

Before they left, another customer who had called me two nights ago showed up with a very fine and antique Persian Senneh rug which needed cleaning, selvage and fringe repair. She also brought in a Varni kilim for cleaning. This beautiful Senneh carpet has a very strange design, few cats, dogs and other small animals probably mice. Couple of other customers also walked in and looked for area rugs. One of them was not sure about the size and said she would measure the room and comeback. The other customer took few photos of two rugs, one area rug and the other a tufted rug to see if they match the interior design of her house.

I went home at around five pm.
