Dubai Things: Carpet Oasis

It’s Dubai Shopping Festival time, which means other than ridiculous sales at all the malls, there is an AMAZING carpet exhibition going on at the World Trade Center. Persian rugs are definitely a zhila thing (#ruglife forever), and I was basically in carpet heaven. I also learned a thing or two, such as the difference in materials used as the base versus the design, how the knots/thread count work¬†and what that means for the quality, and even a region in Iran called Nain I had never heard of before. My personal favorites are the classic style from Tabriz, and I look forward to buying one for myself someday.
