With over 125 years of combined experience, our staff is friendly and knowledgeable in every aspect of the hand-made rug business. We are a family owned and operated business. The owner of Southwest Looms, Douglas Lay, got started in the oriental rug business after spending many months in Iran in the 1960s and 70s conducting zoological research. Since that time, he has become a respected expert on hand woven carpets, who lectures nationwide on the subject. He has applied his interest in the art of weaving and his keen eye for color and design, to developing several lines of carpets, including a line of Antique Persian Reproduction carpets and a line of British Arts & Crafts and Mission Style carpets.
