My name is Renee Dennis. I live in the US and have met Ali Amini at Golden Rug in the spring of 2004 during one of my visits to Vancouver.
I came in to buy a shawl and very quickly was immersed into the world of fine Persian carpet making.
I didn't know much about carpets and to understand how they are made and differences between chemical and vegetable dyes was fascinating!
Ali showed me some very fine Persian Gabbeh carpets. I brought them home with me and they have changed the ambiance of my home and added so much colour and wonderful energy.
I stop by at Golden Rug when I visit Vancouver. The service, knowledge that company provides is something I have not seen before and hope the store would be around for many years to educate us and better our homes."
