Today, Mr. Mousa Karimzadeh, a friend of the 80’s from Hamburg came to visit me in our rug gallery in Los Angeles. Mr. Karimzadeh lives in New York now. Many of our friends from Hamburg have moved to the United States and most of them live in New York. Mr. Karimzadeh had a rug warehouse in the free port of Hamburg (Freihafen) and was our neighbor for a few years. He still deals and works with Persian and Oriental rugs, but this time more as a hobby than a real business. He stayed for more than one hour with us and we talked and reviewed good old memories of the 80’s when the rug market was so good and everybody was busy buying and selling.
I took photos of about 40 Sarouk rugs today from different angles to be edited and posted on our website: www.RugIdea.com. We received these rugs recently from Tehran. My helper and later my two sons helped me do this. We were all tired at the end of the day when we were going home. Our repairman is still busy with the Pakistani rug which is damaged by moth.
