If they are similar to Persian Carpets then there a quite a number of them here. Most of them have been around for the 20 or so years I've been here in Singapore. Very well established with very good reps (for the most part).

This maybe a long shot, but is he Iranian, small with glasses, married to a Japanese, they met in Denmark, if so I would like to contact him please PM me, if its him!

KSL,

No, even he married with a Japanese lady, he is a Turkish fella, not Iranian.

Have another Japanese friend who is also Turkish rug importer in Japan and very interested in SG market and with A plus customers field there.

Briefly, Turkish and Iranian rugs and carpets are very similar but in different taste and worth so I cant talk about any strong competiotion to eachother.
