Dear Hans, your gorgeous rugs are an absolute joy. They have beautified many rooms in my house and are an ongoing delight. The cleaning and delivery service you provide is excellent, as are the delicious eggs from your hens.
Thank you for everything.

I have nothing but good things to say about Hans at the Antique Rug Galleria.  I have worked with him in various capacities for the past five years at least, and have been thoroughly pleased.
Oriental rugs — new OR old — are a mysterious and fascinating subject.  Some of mine go back to my grand-
mother — some she inherited — and date to the mid-19th century.  Hans has been most helpful in explaining their peculiarities and history to me, restoring and cleaning them to almost look new.  (ALMOST being the key word, as one would NEVER want them to look 100% new!)
He and his artisans also saved the life of a large room-size Tabriz that had suffered immensely from moth damage, and truly, you cannot tell the repaired area from the original. In this day and age, it is indeed difficult to find people in any respected trade who can do things the “old” way. He is now designing and manufacturing new pieces with a distinctive fashionable, yet unique style.
His manor and sense of taste make him a pleasure to work with in purchasing pieces from the shop, and he
is painstaking in picking out what he thinks will work in your own home and bringing pieces over for on-site inspection.
Nothing but compliments  from me for Hans Boujaran. Even his name sounds like a valuable carpet!
