The lucky picker…

We’d like to congratulate Elizabeth Delphy of Lafayette, lucky winner of the wonderful carpet pictured below!

Lucky Winner Elizabeth Delphy

…and the lucky winner.

During our September Anniversary Sale, customers put their names in a hat to win this living-room-sized Pakistani rendering of an historic carpet called the Portuguese Carpet.

The prototype of this carpet was woven in Persia about 300 years ago, apparently for the Portuguese court. Note the European boats and sailors in its four corners.

Persian Rugs: A Last Chance?

Persian Bidjar, 3’8″ x 5’8″ This piece is a good example of the striking originality of many Persian carpets.

The US is expanding its embargo of Iranian goods to include Oriental carpets!

After September 30th, no new Persian rugs may be brought into the US. (In the world of Oriental rugs, Persian rug refers solely to those from Iran.) When the Persian carpets in this country are gone, they cannot be replaced

Persian carpets are arguably the best in the world, known especially for their lustrous wool and unmatched use of color. We at Emmett Eiland’s are especially keen on the new generation of Persian carpets woven with hand spun wool and natural dyes. We are terribly sorry to see them become unavailable, but, as long as we can’t help it, we will see them out in style.

While other dealers plan to raise prices on their stock of Persian carpets, during September we are offering them at the lowest prices you are likely ever to see.

During September, Every New Iranian Carpet is on SALE at 25% Off . . . while they Last!

Persian carpets are relatively expensive, but at 25% off, the best carpets in the world suddenly become affordable. This may literally be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to own a wonderful Persian rug . . . before they all disappear.
