Stepping on a beautiful carpet may change your life forever

When I was a kid, I used to walk back home from school through a big rounded square. There were a lot of shops in this square but most of them did not interest me - except for one big shop for antique Persian carpets and rugs. It had a big glass window, and whenever I happened to pass by, even when glancing at it from a distance, I found the interior of the shop, as reflected through the window, mysterious and attracting. The rugs that were piled inside, on the floor and along the walls, made it feel darker than the other shops, but at the same time, much richer in color and deepness.

What was there that so fascinated my mind? 

The Antique Oriental Carpets & Rugs directory on your left, will let you accompany me in this dreamy path.
