A curated collection of hand-knotted rugs from the collection of renown rug dealer Emmert Elsea. For more than 40 years, Emmert was devoted to showcasing the beauty and quality of the world’s best made rugs from Iran, Turkey, India and China. He prided himself on removing surcharges and middlemen to offer the best quality rugs at discounted prices.
