We import rugs directly from Iran,Afghanistan, India and Belgium. Our shop is one of the largest in the South Island offering both handmade,machine made and modern rugs. 

We have a wide selection of quality rugs to choose from and the Proprietor Daniel Skaf particularly enjoys his stock buying trips to Iran where he personally selects each rug for purchase. Our stock range includes popular rugs like Lory, Sirjan, Chobi,  Ghasghai and Baluchi plus many more styles to choose from. If your wondering about size, we stock rugs as small as  70 x 90 cm all the way to 400 x 300 cm.

Our machine made rugs are made in Belgium by  Osta Carpets and are very high quality and most rugs are made with 100% New Zealand wool which proves very popular with our customers.
