Paula and Lincoln Wilson have traveled the world for their rugs. The Wilson’s appreciate the rugs as fine works of art. They hand select each and every piece using their expertise, choosing the most desirable weavings with the highest quality of rolex replica each style and construction. The idea is to find rugs that will stay the test of time. In doing so they have created the most diverse collection in all of Arizona. You will easily find that work of art that appeals to you; from antique to new, classic traditional to contemporary, formal city rugs, handsome village rugs and increasingly rare nomadic rugs, coming from the far near and middle east as well as collectible Navajo and contemporary Zapotec Indian rugs.
Rare, old and antique rugs
It is accepted in the rug world that a rug is antique when it reaches 100 years. That being said, just because a rug is over one hundred does not necessarily make it the most collectible. As our world is increasingly urbanizing and newer technologies are becoming evident globally, the way of the nomads is decreasing, and thus fewer contemporary nomadic weavings are being created, making some of the older tribal weavings increasingly collectible. Like most things that are collectible, rugs can be tricky and it is best to find a reputable dealer that you can trust to guide you and educate you whether you buy from them or not. Lincoln and Paula Wilson believe that in Tubac Old World Imports “The Rug Store”, the education is always free and we welcome your questions.
