Every knot in an authentic oriental rug
is the footstep of an ancient tribesman.
He wanders Central Asia's high plateau
looking for water.
His feet land on ground that is hard and dry.
Into rugs he weaves his picture of paradise:
a garden filled with flowers, trees, and fountains.

Buying Guide

At Joseph's, we believe in building long-term relationships with our customers. After all, we've been in business since 1949. We've always believed an educated customer is a satisfied customer.

Unfortunately, our competition doesn't always believe this. Every day, dozens of people are virtually 'robbed blind' at fraudulent Going-Out-of-Business Sales and Auctions that offer widely inflated discounts off of equally inflated prices. And when they go back to try to return the rugs, the operator refuses to accept them or has left town to run a 'going out of business sale' in the next county under a different name.

The truth, in many cases, is that the sale is being run by a professional oriental rug 'liquidator' - not the original store owner.
We've prepared a brief summary of "what to look for" to avoid the pitfalls associated with fraudulent going-out-of-business sales and other inappropriate business practices.

Buy Your Oriental Rug From A Reputable Dealer

  1. Get to know the dealer.
  2. Shop and compare by quality and price.
  3. Ask about properly caring for your rugs.

An Oriental Rug, wisely purchased, is a truly magnificent possession. It is our goal for you to experience a lifetime of enjoyment and a legacy of beauty for generations to come.

Protect Yourself

  1. Beware of high pressure sales.
  2. Don't equate legitimacy with big dollar advertising.
  3. Any guarantee is only as good as the store that offers it.
