Topic: Karapinar Myth Busting

The quote: "A rose by any other name is still a rose" rings true, but when the rose label is applied to a dandelion, and then the dandelion is believed by many to be a rose, truth needs to speak up.

In rugDumb too many, have too often, claimed: "It's a Karapinar". And too many of you believed them, or at least didn't bother to think about it.

Well, RK didn't and doesn't, and that's why we spent time and effort to memorialize proof the "Karapinar" label is 100 percent nonsense.

We have moved our "Karapinar Myth" series here and hope the more interested and motivated of our readership will spend some of their time and effort to read and learn from our multi-part presentation.

Greetings Ed:

Thanks for the compliment.

Greetings JC: Having 'missed' it the first time around, I did indeed read the re-publishing of your articles on Karapinar rugs. Excellent!! Well written and, most importantly, informative; a quality in limited supply in the current 'world of rugs'.
