CUSTOMER NOTICE MAY 2020: We are now taking email and voicemail bookings for our professional Rug Cleaning Services, where we can collect and return deliver your cleaned pieces to your door, so that you can safely enjoy the fantastic results at home! Due to the current heavy demand for our services, we advise that you book your pieces in as early as possible. We transform all types of stained, allergen-filled, soiled and dust-worn rugs into clean, virus-free and safe-to-use, silky-soft pieces once more, using our specialist de-dusting and professional deep-wash cleaning works and corrective stain-odour treatments to shake out, flush away and hygienically remove harmful debris build-ups, with fantastic results! Our meticulously applied rug de-dusting safely eliminates embedded accumulations that vacuuming alone cannot remove, combined with our specialist rug cleaning that thoroughly penetrates and deep cleanses your pieces. Unlike dry-cleaning systems used in-situ, our powerful deep-wash rug works give a better, more conditioned clean, with the rug colours revived, the pile thoroughly dried, cleansed and refreshed, and the yarn lustre restored! While our eco-safe, individually applied, stain-odour treatments will disinfect, alleviate and improve deeply absorbed and saturated stubborn stains, odours and colour-run. Contact us by email or leave a voicemail today and we will confirm your booking within 24 hours. :::::

THE ORIENTAL RUG GALLERY LTD’S TALK AT HASLEMERE FESTIVAL

The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd was thrilled to be personally invited to take part in the Haselmere Festival 2009, by its Founder and Chairman Hamish Donaldson DL MBE. This prestigious Surrey event was a wonderful opportunity for Anas and Sandre to share their Rug Specialist skills, Master Rug Craftsman expertise, and Decorative Arts knowledge of hand-woven rugs, carpets, tapestries and decorative embellished pieces as a Cultural Talk entitled: 'A Journey of Discovery for Oriental Rug Weavings Tapestries', that took place in the Lecture Hall at Haslemere Educational Museum.

 

The Rug Gallery’s sell-out Festival event was held on Wednesday, 27th May and began with opening introductions given by Mayor Melanie Odell and former Mayor, Councillor Fay Foster CBE to attending guests. Both praised the couple’s ongoing commitment and endeavours in sharing their rug knowledge and decorative arts passion at The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd with their customers and through their Haslemere Coat of Arms Weaving events: Open Weave and Schools In Stitches, also held at The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd in Wey Hill, Haslemere.

 

Afterwards, Anas and Sandre gave an animated and illustrated, two-hour Talk on the cultural heritage of hand-woven rugs and tapestries and the Journey of the Haslemere Coat of Arms Weaving to a packed auditorium at the Museum. The rapt audience were also given the opportunity to participate in the ‘Haslemere In Stitches Open Weave’ event, by hand-weaving their rug knots into the Coat of Arms Rug Weaving and subsequently receiving personalised ‘Certificates of Weave’ in recognition of their achievements. The Rug Weaving had been transported to the Museum from the Rug Gallery – complete with its traditional rug-weaving loom – especially for the event.

 

Anas’s father – a third-generation Master Rug Craftsman of the family’s 100-year-old rug business – flew in from Damascus for the event and other rug seminars taking place in London, where he was to be the Guest of Honour. He was introduced to those attending the Haslemere Festival Talk event by Madam Mayor Cllr. Melanie Odell as the event's 'Special Guest'.

 

As well as being a highly respected Rug and Carpet Specialist, Dealer and Master Craftsman, Anas' father is also the former Director of the family’s Ajami Rug Gallery – although now officially retired, and was previously a long-standing Middle East Chamber of Business & Commerce Merchant Member. Notwithstanding, he continues to travel sharing his knowledge and years of experience in the hand-woven rug and Oriental carpet field, with those eager to learn Rug Lore from a long established and upstanding Master of the Rug Craft.
