My First Rug: A life-long appreciation for Oriental Rugs

Recently, I came across this old photograph of my family and I during a vacation, where we visited the city of Gorgan in Northern Iran in the 1970s and traveled by bus to the countryside, stopping in Turkmen Sahra for a day trip, and while there we visited the local markets, where tribal craftsmen and craftswomen sold their handmade goods. My parent's interest in hand-knotted rugs was passed down to my siblings and I, with my father having particularly good taste for quality rugs.

In the photo, I was only about 12 or 13 and standing beside me is my younger brother, Merat, both of us happy to be a part of our very first Oriental rug purchase with our family; we chose an authentic Turkmen rug with an elephant foot motif. 

Looking back, decades later, I'd never thought one day that I would have a shop selling these pieces of art in Historic Ellicott City. I am reminded of wonderful memories from the past and I am always looking forward to the new memories I am creating today with family and friends.

Thanking my family, my loyal customers, and you for reading.

Until next time,
Mojan
