We are 3rd generation of the family which started rug trading in 1938 in the rich carpet producing city of Tabriz in Iran.
The main line of business has always been exporting top quality handmade Iranian carpets to Europe and the USA. My grandfather was one of the pioneers of the trade where he used to export most of his carpets to Hamburg which was the gateway to Europe and the USA.
It was fascinating to me as a young boy to sit on piles of carpets and listen to the conversations between my father and his associates. I think the advice my father used to give his customers was based on a sense of responsibility, he used to say “its the name you leave behind”.
I have always been fascinated by the beauty of Persian carpets and always enjoyed helping customers learn more about the traditional art of carpet making. I am also determined to continue my family tradition of honesty and integrity in business.
Our Persian carpets are all sourced and selected by our own agents in Tehran, Tabriz, Mashad, Kashan, Sarog, Isfahan and Shiraz. After careful examination the carpets are washed and cleaned and shipped to our UK storage.
