Question by expat: how to buy a Persian Rug?
I live in Dubai and really love the Persian Rugs which are displayed at different markets and shops. I want to buy one but the problem is I have no idea how to judge its quality and whether or not the vendor is asking too much for it. How can I reasonably judge the value of a rug so that I can bargain in good faith and have one of these beautiful things in my home ? Also, can you recommend a vendor or area of the city to find the best buys?

    i agree with the other answer, try to get someone who speaks good english to explain to u the different qualities and prices then try to get a bargain.

    there are many shops either in malls or in the street markets that does have the NAME and PICTURE of persian carpets .. just take a drive where small markets and you’ll find the signs ..

    and Friday market in northern emirates have that too .. many and many different kinds and sizes .. about 30 – 45 mins from Dubai .. ask any taxi about friday market or Souq Al Juma’a and they’ll help you ..

Tell me what you're thinking...
