I met Barry in 1998 and we have been in close communication ever since. Barry has supported me all along the way as I transitioned into the Oriental rug business. Barry has worked tirelessly to build the largest and most complete data base on Oriental rugs that exists today. There is something for everybody on Barry's rug sites from the advanced connoisseur to the beginning collector. I regularly use Barry's sites to help fill in gaps of my own knowledge. When I want to find out how good a certain type of rug is I just compare it to the examples Barry has cataloged. Furthermore Barry's sites provide a great deal of entertainment for the lay person because he has accumulated a wealth of beautiful images he shares with the world....for free! Barry also maintains records of those rug professionals who do a good and reputable business."
Barry's insight and enthusiasm for discovering the cultural and historical background of oriental rugs is unsurpassed. His refreshing comments and willingness to share to the uninitiated have built an impressive following over the years."

I have know Barry since he was a student of my Father...going back into the mid 1980's. Barry has been a knowledge sponge and has read and absorbed a huge amount of knowledge. He has shared a great deal of this knowledge on his Spongobong.com and persiancarpetguide.com web site. 100's or 1000's of pages. He told me once, that was his "Therapy" writing all of those pages. He is a good man and a great friend."
