London’s importance within the old and antique oriental rug and carpet trade

London is one of the worlds premier centres for old and antique Oriental rugs and carpets. Mainly due to her important ties with Persia and her outposts during the time of the British Empire, in particular India, London soon became known throughout the world as the place to purchase fine oriental rugs and carpets. Take a look inside any of Britain's grand houses or stately homes and you will find an eclectic mix of Oriental rugs and carpets from many parts of the rug and carpet producing world. Today London's Oriental rug and carpet warehouses are still an important centre and a tour around them is a wonder to behold.
