When the revolution took place in the early 70ís and the Shah was dethroned, my brother and I came to the United States to continue our studies in Civil Engineering at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. During that time we lived with our uncle who also owns an Oriental rug gallery and learned the rug business from him.
Upon graduating from the George Washington University, my brother and I decided to stay in the United States because of all the changes that had occurred in Iran. We decided to put to use all we had learned from our family and opened our own Oriental rug gallery. Our father, mother, grand parents, and siblings all joined us in the U.S. as they were able to leave Iran.
Under the guidance of our grandfather and father, we not only sold rugs, but learned the value of antique and semi-antique rugs and the importance to preserve these magnificent pieces by restoring them to their original beauty. We found the best rug weavers and repair persons and are successful in bringing back to life some very ancient masterpieces. Further, we also found that cleaning these rugs was of the utmost importance to help preserve them and avoid early deterioration, and hired professionals to hand wash the rugs.
We have the largest selection of antique, semi-antique, and modern Oriental rugs in the greater Washington area. Our staff is very knowledgeable and we offer great reasonable prices, and all the services relating to oriental rugs, from sale to delivery and installation, decorating suggestions, cleaning and repairing, and each rug comes with its Certificate of Authenticity.
