Turkoman Carpets

The best place to buy a hand-woven carpet is in downtown Nairobi. We have bought two wonderful carpets there - one in about 1992 and the second just last year. The rugs are expensive, but they're about half what they would cost in the States.

Tukoman employs several guys who hand-repair damaged or worn carpets. (During our first Kenya life, we had a cat. Just before returning to the States, with carpet in our luggage, we had them fix the damage kitty caused. Good as new!)
