the decimal system

Dear Mr. Price,

there are small and rather insigificant groups of rug and textile collectors who cant visualize feet and inches . . .perhaps for those of us who think in the little used decimal system -- i think it uses centimeters and meters and other strange and illogical names -- a translation might be added :>}

happy holidays

Hi Richard,

Here's a quick and easy way to make reasonably accurate conversions between the English and metric measurement systems for rug dimensions.

1 inch = 2.54 cm.
1 foot = 30 cm
