A Brief History

Providing outstanding selection and service to their customers in a true full service rug center.

Since 1978, The Persian Rug Cleaner’s rug gallery has been in the business of selling, both retail and wholesale, fine handmade rugs as well as expert cleaning, repair and restoration.

The Tavakolian brothers came to the United States in 1970 to pursue their higher education. This completed, the brothers decided to carry on their traditional family business of importing and exporting handmade rugs. They chose Dallas, Texas as their headquarters because of the tremendous growth this area was experiencing. Initially, the brothers directly imported rugs from Iran(Persia), and then expanded their import and manufacturing business to India, China, Pakistan and Romania due to the wide variety of colors, designs and grades of quality found in these countries. Then and now, their goal was to provide outstanding selection and service to their customers in a true full service rug center.

In 1999, Behnam Tavakolian moved one block north on Preston road, when he designed and built a distinctive Mediterranean-style 15,000 square foot showroom/service center from the ground up. The showroom was designed to utilize as much natural light as possible as it showcases beautiful antique and new rugs from around the world. It is a source to interior designers, architects, and homeowners who have come to appreciate the unparalleled selection. Adjacent to the showroom is their state of the art, 100% hand wash rug cleaning facility, along with a repair/restoration section.
