When N. Vrouyr opened the shop in Antwerp, it simultaneously installed a workshop on the upper floor. A small team of qualified and skilled craftsmen works on the premises. They will take care of your carpets in a most professional way. We treat all matters in house and never outsource!
On request, all carpets can be displayed in your interior . We often cross borders to offer this service. This is free of charge. With years of expertise, we can assist you in making your selection or final choice.
Are you too busy to come and visit us? Is it difficult for you to move? No problem, you can make an online selection by adding rugs to your list of favourites. We shall gladly show you all of them at home. You can also send us pictures of your interior: we will make suggestions or help you make a choice.
APPRAISALS & CERTIFICATES
We deliver appraisals and certificates for insurance companies and documents for legacies.
We are member of following official organizations: ROCAD (Royal Chamber of Art Dealers), ARTEXPERTS (Belgian association of Art Experts), BSOT (Bundesverband der Sachverständigen für orientalische, handgeknüpfte Teppiche und Flachgewebe e.V.) and the TMV (Federatie van Taxateurs Makelaars Veilinhouders in Roerende Zaken).
We handle the official tariffs, implemented by these organizations.
In Belgium no one has to prove his knowledge nor justify his title of “expert on rugs”. There is no practical neither theoretical examination. It means anyone can freely sign certificates of origin and call himself an expert. Therefore Naïry Vrouyr has decided to pass the exams at the TMV in the Netherlands and the BSOT in Germany. She was an intern at the Textile Museum in Washington DC and at the restoring workshop of ATC in Izmir, Turkey. She was selected to take part in the International Conference on Oriental Carpets in Stockholm with her study on Rumanian kilims.
Does your rug slide on the floor? Underlays can be obtained in any size at the store.
The underlays are made of a porous material and thus heat from your floor heating will easily pass trhough.
