Caravan Connection owner Michael McRee discovered a passion for Oriental rugs pursuing another profession: a West Point graduate, he was sent to Turkey by the U.S. Army. He and his wife, co-owner Mary Lynn, returned home eager to share the love and knowledge about these woven works of art. Today, Persian Gabbeh and Tibetan rugs are all the rage at Caravan Connection, which has been a go-to source for Oriental rugs in Westchester since 1979. Winner of Westchester Magazines 2006 Best of Westchester honors for best rugs (Readers Choice) and best rug cleaners, the company carries Oriental rugs from Megerian, Renaissance, Abadjian, Jerry H. Aziz, French Accents, and Tufenkian, among others. The experienced staff does custom coloring and sizing, and helps clients choose weaves from Pakistan, India, Egypt, Turkey, Iran, and China.
