OLD ORIENTAL CARPET
WELCOME TO OLD ORIENTAL CARPET.
We specialise in hand woven rugs, kilims, artifacts, antiques and ceramics from Central Asia and North Africa. We have been in our adopted home of southern Spain since 1994 and have many collectors, enthusiasts and insitutions among our 650 or so customers who are spread through 37 countries.
Morocco is only a 35 minute ferry ride away and this enables us to make frequent visits to find the older and more interesting rugs and textiles.
We also appraise, value and restore most types of hand woven rugs. You are very welcome to visit the studio.
Please visit the relevant pages on www.oldorientlcarpet.com to see selections and never hesitate to ask any questions -- advice is free and impartial.
Thankyou and best wishes, Lloyd Rowcroft.
Our sister company is Ali's Regalos Gaucin which is an authentic, fascinating Moroccan bazar in the centre of the ancient Moorish village of Gaucin in southern Spain. Here you will find a kaleidascope of Berber artisanal work in leather, ceramics, lamps, wood, metal and, of course, textiles There are antiques including ceramic tiles on display. We add fascinating style to homes with the introduction of calm, understated, Berber rugs and textiles, or by adding something like ceramics and textiles in the riotous colours used in Berber dwellings. We work closely with Architects and Interior Designers and are currenty decorating homes in Spain, England, Switzerland and Greece.

Please do not hesitate to ask questions. Again, advice is free. Thankyou and best wishes, Ali Summers.
