Do you know how to purchase handmade rugs while traveling abroad?
Shopping for a rugs in a foreign country can be challenging and the risks of being taken advantage of are high for the average tourist.
Every year we have been contacted by our clients, who have purchased rugs while traveling abroad. Most times, our clients have been disappointed to know, they were sold a synthetic silk rug to the price of a natural silk rug.
Behnam Rugs appraises over hundred of rugs yearly. The rugs that are appraised endure environmental damage, water damage, smoke damage, fire damage, vacuum damage, even pet damage. Majority of these rugs are heirlooms, or have been purchased in other countries while signed up with a travel agency group traveling with on a cruise ship, even those who travel by air are not immune of fake rug excursions arrangements.
Rug Buying Experience
Often times we have noticed that the average American tourist has no idea what to expect when traveling to other countries. Tourists see beautiful rugs and purchase what they see, without examining the merchandise. Thus resulting in purchasing viscose rayon silk in place of natural silk rugs; or purchase handmade woven rugs instead of Persian handmade rugs.
We have noticed often times tourists lack the knowledge of other countries business psychology and in turn the average American tourists has a negative experience. In this seminar, we would like to educate everyone on what to look out for. Please come and share your rug stories.
Bring your rug over to Behnam Rugs we will inspect it an provide a host of services: Oriental rug cleaning Dallas, rug care services-repair, pet stain removal Dallas, silk rug wash, and rug restoration services for your rugs.
