You obviously haven't visited WAYWRN for quite a while.
That bag won't work very well for a suit. You need a suiter. If you will ever transit London -- and you will -- you had better make sure it fits strictly within their size guidelines, which are slightly smaller than those of many countries. London airports are pretty tough about enforcing these rules. Tumi makes one which they guarantee will work. I think Victorinox does as well, which would be a cheaper option. As for Ryan air, et. al. some of them have their own...

Unfortunately, that's always a possibility, even if you're buying a carpet that has some sort of certification.The ironic thing is that Iran has arguably the best carpets and the cleanest industry. Due to sanctions, however, Iranian carpets can't be imported in most countries. So where they are available, there's a glut...
A reputable on-line carpet dealer? I think you had better resign yourself to the idea that WYSIWYG. Any extraordinary claims should be discounted by close to 100%. If someone is offering you a brand-new machine-made mostly-wool carpet, you will probably get what you pay for. If someone is offering you an antique 100% Vicuna, 2000 knots/inch carpet that was hand-woven by the Sultan's Mother-in-Law, not so much.If you want to buy something special, you really have to...
