SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE. Whether buying rugs from the Afghans in Central Asia in the 1980`s and 90`s or today from the Berbers in the mountains of Morocco the fresh bread and tea which accompanies all long negotiations is still the same -- Wonderful. I specialize in Moroccan rugs and textiles and as I live in the southern tip of Spain and Morocco is only a 35 minute ferry ride away, share my time between the two countries.
