OUR HISTORY

My firm was born in 1,978 in a garage in Padua, with in pocket only an entrepreneurial dream.
The start activity was not the commerce but carpet washing. There was not the web and not even money; to win clients I consumed the keys of a small Olivetti typewriter. After a couple of years I had a wide list of shops and artisans that send their clients to me and I needed personnel. Among these I also assumed an Iranian that introduced me in the world of oriental carpet.

RUGS AND TAPESTRIES OF GB-RUGS

I began to appreciate these pieces observing their merits and defects, making comparisons among quality, origins, prices, etc. It becomes quite a mania. I purchased rugs for myself, above all antique one, also making some excesses. After some years I had a hundred antique pieces, splendid and expensive.

In that periodof eighties, the old site was not enough and I absolutely had to find a suitable space.
I decided to take an external space and so it was born the gallery in Prato della Valle, the greatest European square. The shop was also excellent for the carpets sale: it had four great shop windows. Then I made the show in the anterior part and on background the restorers at work. 

CAUCASIANS SOUMAKS OF GB-RUGS.COM

After about ten years, with laboratory and shop in different places, it had become diffcult to follow both and, in 2002, I decided to create one unique seat: I sold laboratory and shop and I purchased a seat in the industrial zone, very close to the city center and from Padua-east exit (where we are now). The clients stopped to search parking, I would not had to race anymore because someone was waiting me, the personnel would have been available in an only place.

DESIGNER CARPETS OF GB-RUGS.COM

In 2003 was online our first site and I immediately understand that was appreciated, despite the photos were not good and it brings a notable number of clients. Today we are to the third site and shortly very the quarter will start. From a local handicraft activity, we now work and we sell all over the world.
