About Us

Persepolis Oriental Rugs was established in 1968 by Hossein Nilforoush, a third generation rug dealer and indigo dye exporter. 

I hope that you are enjoying your valuable Persian rugs that have over 5,000 years of history behind it and is regarded as one of the best types of artwork or investments. These rugs have been dwelling in the minds of master weavers who produce these beautiful designs, colors, and workmanship that pleases the eyes of the beholder. The majority of these rugs are made by only one person and only one rug is usually produced from each design.

I personally love rugs and am a collector of fine new and antique rugs. I own the place of my business and all of my customers are from referral, so I have the lowest overhead. Please refer me to your friends. I will serve them very professionally and patiently and save them thousands of dollars.

I am the 3rd generation in rug business. Also you see my business name often in Washingtonian Magazine. My name has been shown a few times in Washingtonian Magazine as the best rug dealer in the area.

We have all kinds of hand made rugs, special fine new antigues, collector items, musuem pieces, especially the Persian, Antique Serapy and Persian fine tabriz, wool and silk rugs.
