About Stafford's Rugs
Stafford's Handwoven Rugs is a business in Portland, Oregon that focuses on vintage handwoven rugs from countries including Iran/Persia, Afghanistan, and Turkey, as well as cultural regions including the Caucasus Mountains, Kurdistan, Turkestan, and Baluchistan.
The business operates somewhere between a brick & mortar and e-commerce. The location is not a place to show and browse like a B&M, nor is the website a place to make an immediate e-commerce purchase. The website was built to view what is available and provide transparency to the origin, age, and condition. Purchasing directly from the site is not an option. The site provides clients a source to see the current selection, create a selection of rugs, and make an appointment to view that selection.
Generally the rugs and carpets are sold on-site where clients view a selection of rugs by appointment. These are vintage rugs that have a history and uniqueness. Along with the history, the rugs may have condition issues involving reduced pile, aged/muted colors, bled dyes, or other imperfections. All condition issues are noted in each rug's description. Best to fully read the descriptions.
The rugs are listed from largest to smallest in each category. Click on a rug to view the full description specifying the history, design, and condition, among other details
