The rich density of fabric and color of Persian carpets are unlike any other. They possess characteristics that are truly magical. 1001 Arabian Nights recalls that King Solomon had a green carpet, large enough to carry his throne, two lions and two armies. When the armies closed ranks, Solomon called the wind to lift the carpet and carry it where ever he chose. The carpet flew and all men on board were safe.

Well, you don’t know what we can find.
Why don’t you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride.
Well, you don’t know what we can see.
Why don’t you tell your dreams to me.
Fantasy will set you free.
Close your eyes girl.
Look inside girl.
Let the sound take you away.
