TWO BROTHERS WITH THE AMERICAN DREAM

When the revolution took place in Iran during the early 1970’s 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) parents, grandparents, 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) of preserving these magnificent pieces by restoring them to their original beauty. We found the best rug weavers and repair (persons) people, who have been (and are) successful in (bringing back to life) restoring some very ancient masterpieces. Furthermore, we also found that properly cleaning these rugs was (of the utmost importance to) critical in helping preserve them and avoiding early deterioration.(, and) Therefore, we 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 the purchase of O(o)riental rugs, from sale to delivery and installation, decorating suggestions, cleaning and repairing.,( and) E(e)ach rug comes with its own Certificate of Authenticity.
