For over three-hundred years the Nooraee family has imparted the Oriental rug trade from generation to generation.  Today, Mohammad Nooraee continues that tradition as founder and president of Noor Oriental Rugs, Inc, and as one of the world’s foremost appraisers of fine rugs.  Himself a master weaver, Mr. Nooraee has designed hundreds of rugs and has traveled across the globe to personally commission, select, and inspect hundreds more.  The rugs in Mr. Nooraee’s collection honor pedigree, soulfully hand-woven from homespun wool, natural fibers, and color-fast dyes.   

Noor Oriental Rugs stands apart as both an importer and as a producer of fine oriental rugs.  With numerous looms across the Middle East, Mr. Nooraee would be delighted to custom design a rug to your tastes and demands.  Mr. Nooraee invites you to challenge him with your exacting choices of pattern, color, and size; he stands confident in his ability to find you your dream rug—even if that dream was woven generations ago.  Mr. Nooraee asserts that he can locate most antique rugs of your description.
