This is one of those gems of Tucson that you wouldn't even be aware of unless you chanced upon the store through good fortune or had a friend wise enough to tell you to go to Karimi's before ordering that machine-tufted monstrosity from the Pottery Barn Catalog (many thanks to our friend and neighbor, you were right, we were wrong, there, we said it! :) Karimi's is quite literally covered from wall-to-wall with exquisitely colored and designed rugs from all over the world. Though the emphasis there is on handmade Persian rugs, there are rugs from all over the world in every size and color - and there are great options for every budget. But, if you're like me, a good selection of anything doesn't mean a whole lot when you can't appreciate what it is you are buying. And that is what truly separates Karimi's from the many other furnishings stores that my wife and I have purchased things from in the past. What you find when you enter Karimi's is an atmosphere of passion and an owner who truly loves what he does. Amir, is both gracious and knowledgeable, but even more importantly he has a respect for his clientele that I've rarely encountered in retail store owners. Amir is a man of seemingly infinite patience, deftly navigating the treacherous waters of husband and wife indecision and steering us gently when he found a direction we could both agree upon. We must have gone a dozen or more times during our quest for the perfect dining room piece. A process that took months, and one that during which he allowed us to "test" a variety of rugs - lending them for the weekend - until we found the perfect one. Had that been all, it would have been above and beyond what most stores will tolerate in a patron. But It wasn't enough for Amir that we simply purchased from him. He saw to it that we fell in love with these works of art long before we bought our first one. My wife and I came to find that it is Amir's goal to pass on his own passion and enthusiasm for rugs to anyone interested in learning more about them. And for us, he made the process of learning about them joyful and exotic and mysterious and wonderful all at once, taking however long was necessary to explain the subtle differences in design and quality; describing the various weaving styles and dye ingredients; and giving history and background to the peoples who've carried on these traditions sometimes for millennia. He showed us that it wasn't just a rug's origin or tightness of knot that ultimately defined it; that it was much more complex and magical. He showed us that two rugs woven in the same year, of the same materials, in the same village with nearly identical patterns can reveal striking differences when it comes to value - and that knowing this and learning about it was what made it such a wonderful, never-ending passion. Go to Karimi Oriental Rugs. Have tea with Amir, and begin that same journey that my wife and I undertook. you won't regret it!
