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.
Mr. Nooraee understands your time is precious and limited;
that is why he offers to work with you at your convenience.
He will happily and tirelessly bring rugs to your door for
you to view at any time of day until you are pleased.
