Kilim rug

Last Friday we went to Sharjah, to Blue Souq to get some puffs, but we ended up with buying our first kilim rug (pictured). It originates from Iranian place called Somak. I don't know if you like to haggle or not, but I can assure you that's a lot of fun. Don't rush, take your time, accept tea and browse a lot of carpets first - it's a part of the "haggling game". The sellers at Sheba Store weren't pushy which I liked, and we all had a good laugh every time when I was lowering down the price until we reached an agreement. So, at the end: if you feel that the price is right for you, buy it!
