|| *Message was: I live in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates and I am taking advantage of this location to learn about Persian carpets. I am very much a beginner. However, I have developed an interest in tribal carpets. I have found a shop that sells these and have actually found a design that I like. The carpet is about 8' x 10' and the pile is worn away from much of the center of the carpet, although there is quite a bit on the edges. It is supposedly about 100 - 120 years old. I really do not know. However, it has had many repairs, and it seems like areas were cut and later repaired, as if to allow for a pipe to pass through. Would a carpet with this many repairs (and they are almost exclusively on the sides) be worthless or worth very little?|
Thank you for your help. I have been learning a lot from reading from this message board.
