A 100 Year Battle Over Fine Oriental and Persian Rugs?

Houston's Oriental Rug Bazaar fights to keep integrity in the antique rug and oriental rug business.

Online PR News – 25-August-2011 – – (Houston, Texas) – There is a war going on right here in Houston and most people don’t even know it is going on. Granted, most of the battles have been fought inside of legislative sessions, courtrooms, and marketing departments and there is no recorded blood shed or deaths related to the fight. However, to Alan Taghdisi, owner of Oriental Rug Bazaar, and other legitimate hand-woven oriental rug dealers – the war is one worth fighting and they are winning.

Oriental Rug Bazaar has been here for over 100 years – and has never advertised they were Going out of Business, that All Sales Final, or that Everything Must Go. Instead the company has focused on educating the buyers, providing excellent customer service, and by only selling authentic hand-woven Oriental rugs and tapestries of the highest quality.

Oriental Rug Bazaar’s owner expresses. “The level of artistry and craftsmanship that goes into hand-weaving a single rug can take years and well-made pieces can be passed down through generations over centuries. Preserving and promoting magnificent antique and modern hand-woven pieces is worth the hard work for me.” Taghdisi’s passion for the artistry of tapestry weaving is helping to win the battle here in Houston at least.

Oriental Rug Bazaar has earned the reputation as Houston’s most trusted Oriental Rug dealer, and has a strong reputation within the international community of Oriental tapestry collectors. The majority of buyers are middle and upper class Houstonians who want a quality rug to showcase in their homes as well as interior designers who know they can trust they are buying authentic rugs that will last for generations. The showroom boasts the finest and largest independently owned antique Persian, European and Oriental Rugs, Carpets and Tapestries in the world.
They also offer professional cleanings, repairs, and provide appraisals to Oriental Rug owners.

Oriental Rug Bazaar also has an exclusive, by invitation only, private Vault collection of antique Oriental rugs and frequently is visited by princes, oil moguls, heads of states, and presidents. The centerpiece of the private collection is a Tabriz Silk Rug that is over a hundred years old. The recent U.S. trade embargo against Iranian imports, which includes banning the importation of oriental rugs crafted in Iran, is further driving collectors of Persian rugs to the Oriental Rug Bazaar. As a result, Taghdisi has had to become much more selective in who is allowed inside the private vault to view and purchase these rare pieces.
