Every year, Ali Taghavi and his son, Hamid, travel across the world to locate the finest rugs for our customers.

And if it’s originality you’re after, we also specialise in weaving handcrafted, custom rugs, meaning you can leave Taghavi Oriental Rugs with exactly what you wanted.

About Ali Taghavi, Master Weaver

Ali Taghavi was only five when he learnt the art of weaving under the expert guidance of his father and brother. Having quickly mastered and perfected the wide range of necessary skills, it wasn’t long before he himself was taking orders for his finely crafted rugs. By only eight years old, Ali had developed a worldwide reputation for his talent and started his own business, producing rugs for customers across the globe.

It wasn’t just Ali Taghavi’s weaving skills that set him apart, but also his knowledge of rug care and restoration. Soon, dealers from across the United States were approaching Ali to assist in restoring rugs for their many clients around the world.

In 1977, Ali and his son, Hamid, moved to Memphis, where they opened Taghavi Oriental Rugs. Today, the business continues to be owned and operated by the family, providing excellent service for both new and long-standing customers.
