Today i want to show you a small family run business,
based at Hillevaag,a short 5-minute drive from the centre of Stavanger.
They make some colorful and very nice carpets.

I met Fatemeh, who has been working in the company for 17 years.

Their webpage has more photos, where you can see some of the old machines dating back to 1880, as well as many of the products they make for companies, churches and private homes.

Their webpage is in Norwegian.

Do check out the photos.

It's hard to believe that a business like this still exists...I can imagine their products are exquisite. Are these what are known as rya?

Very nice portrait with a perfect background, colorful and warm. I didn't expect such a trade in Stavanger, Norway!
