Holly Peters has been involved in the creation, promotion, and sale of traditional crafts, namely textiles, for over 30 years.
Holly got her start with an industry leader, working as the General Sales Manager for Woven Legends, Inc., a Philadelphia-based company which revitalized traditional cottage industry carpet weaving in Turkey. Holly managed the sales operation with Woven Legends for nine years prior to founding Holly Peters Oriental Rugs & Home, LLC in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
Located in Kennett Square, this spacious and sophisticated gallery offers a studied, artful approach to buying oriental rugs. The gallery’s showroom is filled with one-of-a-kind hand-woven new and antique textiles, as well as carefully selected handmade imported furniture and unusual decor pieces for the home.
Holly earned her design degree at the Nesbitt College at Drexel University, and is recognized among her colleagues as a specialist in the promotion and sale of traditional village and tribal workshop carpet productions. Her thorough knowledge and expertise, coupled with her timeless collection of rugs, furniture, and art have assisted clients in creating their dream spaces, while Holly’s gallery has become a source of inspiration for both retail clients and interior designers. The gallery has also become home to annual events designed to educate and entertain, such as forums and presentations on the multiple facets of oriental rugs. Holly’s commitment to support traditional artisans and her respect for cultural diversity is evident in every aspect of her business.
