Welcome to Oriental Rug Gallery in Nottingham City Centre

True to the Persian form, we only source the best from the best. Our rugs are imported directly from Persia and satellite weaving centres around the world. We are a small, independent family run business that fell into the rug world through multigenerational rug collection and the passion of buying and collecting rugs from the villages and bazars in the Middle East.

Majid, the owner of this small business, came from long line of rug collectors. He learned all about rugs on those expeditions his mother took him as a little boy on camel back and donkey rides, where he learned all the captivating stories behind each rug. How much love and soul are behind each rug that takes years to complete. Visiting cities and villages all over Iran to collect the best and the most precious rugs was one of the most fond memories of his childhood. Persian rugs have grown so close it has become part of him.

Since 1994, we have organically developed our own hands-on system of sourcing rugs directly from the Middle East and other rug regions. 

We are one of a handful of direct Oriental rug importers in England. We ship worldwide.

Most of our customers are returning customers mainly because we have been around for decades and, if we could say so ourselves, we are quite good at what we do!

Only a small part of the rug collection are photographed and published online. So come and have a look at all our handpicked Oriental rugs in the shop or warehouse!

Weaving is one of the oldest crafts known to mankind. The art of weaving is mentioned in both the Old Testament and Homer’s Iliad. The art of rugs have survived because these wonderful rugs have souls of their own. Antique rugs whispering stories of the past through the bare threads, pure silk rugs by the bedside for that morning luxurious touch, softest young kork (kurk) rugs that’s full of life, we love all the rugs we have, we hope you will find the right one for you will bring you as much joy and happiness as we have experienced.
