Abu's Journey

Four Generations ago one of my ancestors started making rugs for the Noble men in India. Later my grandfather, along with other things, kept the tradition of making rugs.

In 1947 when India and Pakistan split, my family fled to Pakistan. My father was very young and took a path towards education, whereas the rest of the family continued to make rugs.

Dr. Khan my father, went to the UK to Edinborough University and still sold rugs which came from home. The real break came when he was elected as Director of Education of Saudi Arabia. Along with his job he continued his rug business. That is where by watching him sell and explain rugs to customers I learned about them myself.

I was eleven when my family decided to return to Pakistan. Once there, my passion and interest in rugs grew to the point that I would ask my father not for toys as gifts, but rugs. I started learning how to design and make rugs and learning the difference in qualiites. My formal education continued through Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and England. At a young age I left college and came to the united states.
I opened a little store in High Point, NC with about 150 rugs. From there I felt there was no stopping my success. The biggest credit of my success goes to my father. He was an amazing man with two PhD’s from Edinborough University. He taught me everything I know about life and its importance. He guided me so very carefully that I learned and never felt pushed.

My desire of building the best rug store came true in his life. I see my store as a salute to him and his accomplishments.

I love selling rugs and producing them with great honor. I travel the world in search of the most unique of carpets. We Own two places where the cottage industry flourishes, India and Pakistan. We also buy from Nepal, Iran, China, Tibet; wherever quality rugs are being made.

The thing I love about my work is that it provides a living for people abroad and art under my customer’s feet.
