Royal Antique Rugs
Royal Antique Rugs is a haven for antique collectors. A three-generational family business, the Forest Hill store is currently run by David Bakshi, who's been working for several years with the Textile Museum and the City of Toronto as an expert on antique rugs after moving here from Italy. With shops in Toronto, Kingston and New York, Bakshi's rugs are handwoven in cotton or silk and vegetable dyed. The prices range from $500 for a 2'x3' to over $200,000 for larger pieces.
