“I used to be a military driver for the health department. I was 2 doctors’ driver and had a Corona 85. I was dedicated specifically to buying military equipment. Most of the pieces were Romanian, German, or French. They were really good quality. There were absolutely no Chinese goods in this country. When we would go to buy things, my eyes were opened. I was interested in some rugs at the time, and they were really beautiful. I started this job in 1991 when sanctions were imposed on Iraq. There was a market called Mredi, where I slowly bought rugs from and sold here until I was able to gain expertise in rugs. I can now recognize most kinds of rugs in the world in terms of quality.”
