|We have two children. A son named Levi on the left and a daughter named Raquel. We traveled to a Turkman and Yoruk nomad ethnographic center near Akcay, Turkey. I bought rugs from their Yoruk weaving cooperative. All natural colors from different colored sheep not using dye at all.|

traveled to Capadocia, Turkey and toured a large carpet factory and sales
center. Here we are learning about natural dyes used in carpet production.
|July 21, 2004||My wife Mary is from Kentucky and Mary's dad Roy is our company bookkeeper. Here I am in Roy's basement where I also store carpets from time to time. Since Roy is the bookkeeper and his house is paid for then I pay no storage fees and we pass the savings on to you our customers.|
|September 3, 2005||I traveled to Karaman Maras looking for bargains. I bought some items from these nice shop keepers in a small town.|
|September 4, 2005||We met this nice family of nomads in the mountains near Adana. When they heard I was in the carpet business they brought out a beautiful OLD carpet the grandmother had woven. I asked if it was for sale and they said no. I did not push it at all since I could tell they loved that rug. I try to be a friend to the people I meet and not just a guy making a buck.|
