Love-Rugs and Little-Persia combine to create the largest collection of rugs in Scotland. This unique pairing brings together handmade masterpieces from all over The East as well as modern, designer and machine-made traditional rugs all under one roof, and their respective websites.
Little-Persia boasts Scotland’s largest collection of hand-knotted Persian and Oriental rugs, with over 2000 unique works of art for your floor, allowing you to invest in your home’s interior with the highest quality rugs in a delicious range of tones and patterns. You will be transported to the bazaars of Iran upon entering through Little-Persia’s unassuming frontage, welcomed to a world seeped in history and colour, just a stone’s throw away from Glasgow’s city centre.
It was a simple gift passed from father to son three decades ago that sparked the curiosity that led to Little-Persia opening its doors all those years ago. What started as a small collection gathered by owner Reza Cheshmehdoost quickly amassed to the point he could no longer store rugs at home. The Little-Persia gallery was opened and the rest is history.
Since those early days the collection has grown to one of the largest in the UK, each rug lovingly chosen with as much care and attention as the first. Little-Persia has expanded to include rugs from all over Iran, Afghanistan, India, Turkey and China. Rug dealers, interior designers, customers and collectors alike visit Little-Persia to take advantage of the expert advice, to buy and utilise the handmade rug repair and cleaning services on offer. Today, if the perfect rug cannot be found amongst wares of Little-Persia, it can be sourced from Reza’s countless contacts in Iran and around the world. Little-Persia offer rugs starting at £75 up to £64,000 – meaning regardless of budget you could take home your own piece of history, woven into the fibres of a handmade rug today.
It was not until 2008 that Love-Rugs, now Scotland’s number one rug store, was formed. The demand for modern pieces and inexpensive machine-made traditional rugs led to a wider offering which has developed to include everything from budget rugs to designer items.
Today, Love-Rugs are one of the UK’s leading specialists in custom made rugs – creating rugs bespoke to clients’ own design, colours, materials, size and shape. Included in Love-Rugs stock is everything from inexpensive shaggy rugs to wool designer pieces, leather, cowhide and sheepskin, flat woven rugs, natural sisal, seagrass and jute rugs, kilims and much more…
