“Over the past several years we have purchased 2 rugs and used the
rug washing and restoration services of the Magic Carpet in Nevada City.
Magic Carpet's knowledge, service, and dedication to supporting cultural
survival projects that provide health care and educational programs in rug
weaving communities is just an added benefit of this outstanding business.
We really trust Magic Carpet's expert staff for purchases and restoration
and repair work, we highly recommend you do the same, and they are always
willing to take the time to answer questions and provide background information
about these works of art.”

“The Magic Carpet is great, full of very unique rugs, statuary ,silver
and brass jewelry and woven pillows. I became hooked when I wandered in,
looking for a rug for my bedroom.
Paul and Eileen were so helpful and patient with me! They spent a couple hours
pouring over all of the rugs they had, showing me rugs on their "easy to navigate"
web page and helping me to understand the soul and history of these exceptional
rugs. They sent a pile of rugs home with me for a trial run. I was so happy with
the rug I finally selected that when I had finished the remodel of the kitchen and
living room, I returned once again. This time Eileen and Paul actually came out
to my place, took measurements, looked around, and returned two hours later
with a truck load of rugs. It was a fantastic afternoon of drinking tea,
viewing rugs and learning more about the culture and peoples who weave these
I love the rugs, but more than that, I appreciate what Eileen and Paul have
created in the way of community; contributing to our local town by maintaining
a thriving and well respected business for the past 30 years; as well as
supporting struggling communities half way around the world, importing wares
from cultural survival projects that promote health care and education programs
in the rug weaving communities throughout the Middle East. The Magic Carpet is
more than just a beautiful gallery, it is a link between the East and the West,
the old and the new, the modern and the traditional.”

“Moving into a 50+ year old hardwood floor home, we wanted more rugs
to supplement those we brought with us. Also, we needed to have several of
our older ones cleaned. Where to go? Once we met Paul and Eileen, we knew we'd
found the right place. Rugs from Magic Carpet now grace every room in our home.
As we attended several of their public programs that helped us learn what it
takes to make these fine rugs and the heritage that each of them displays, we
were even more convinced. Over the years we continue to appreciate the ways
in which The Magic Carpet is a contributing member of our community. The
support and contributions to many community service programs is outstanding.
Thanks to Paul and Eileen Jorgensen, this community is a happier and more
healthy place, and so are we.”

“Hi Paul, The Kazak arrived safe and sound, and is sunning herself
on the deck after her long trip. This rug is just perfect for the foyer.
I love it! Very “shock and awe” for the front door. The design also feels
very at home under a Kuba we have hanging over the loft railing. What a
great buy. Thanks, Paul! Will definitely shop with you guys again.”
