Our rug from Nanyuki Spinners & Weavers arrived yesterday!

I purchased it on Nov 18th and had them send it via the postal service. They told me it would take about a month which it did. The shipping fee was 4000 shillings which is not bad. The rug is 5' x 7' and the package weighed close to 9 kg. I wasn't charged any duty by US customs. I don't know if this is because they marked it 'handcraft' or because they indicated the value as 3800 shillings. I think one of those made it exempt from duty.
