I opened a little store in High Point, NC with about 150 rugs. From there on, I felt like there was no stopping my success, but the biggest credit of my accomplishments goes to my late father, Dr.Khan. He was an astonishing man with two PhDs from Edinburgh University. He taught me everything I know today, about life and its’ importance. He guided me, so very delicately that I learned and never felt pushed out of my comfort zone. My desire for building a beautiful rug store came true in his life, and I am so grateful that he saw this architectural art. I see my store as paying homage to him and his achievements. I love selling rugs and producing them with great honor. I have traveled the world in search of the most unique carpets. Also, we own two places where the cottage industry flourishes, India and Pakistan. We also buy from Nepal, Iran, China, and Tibet; wherever high-quality rugs are being made. The one thing I love about my profession is that it provides a living for people abroad and art under my customer’s feet.

Dear Abu,Just sending a note to thank you again for your help in appraising my hand-knotted silk Kayseri Turkish rug. Sewing the loops on the backside, and adding the rod and tassels, makes for a perfect wall hanging. You can see this in the Photo Jim texted to you. I will enjoy this work of art for many years to come.During our visit, we reflected on our many travels, especially in Europe and the Middle East. As a young man just out of high school, I spent 2 years on a navy destroyer. Most of those two years, we were in the Mediterranean and the Middle East. Later on, as part of my career with AT&T, I lived in Tehran for two years 1977-1979. This is when the Iranian Revolution was brewing. For the most part, the Iranian people were friendly and hospitable to us expats. You and I were fortunate to experience the different cultures in various parts of the world.I am impressed by the quantity, quality, and variety of carpets in your showrooms. Your knowledge and experience, combined with your focus on customer service, will ensure your success in the future.My Best Regards to You and your Staff,Jerry LaurinJ.L, Greensboro,NC
We have been shopping for rugs for many months now and have not found any store with the extensive selection that Abu Rugs and Home has. What was even more impressive was the customer service and knowledge received from our salesperson, Craig. He wasn’t pushy and patiently assisted us in finding the prefect rug for our room. Even though we live in New Jersey, we will certainly make future trips to buy from Abu Rugs and Home againS.N,
The moment I walked into Abu Rugs and Home I felt very welcome. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly and led me to selecting a rug I know I’ll pass down to my children.K.B. Blairstown, NJ
