Our History

Established in 1893 within Hamedan, Iran, the Rug Club proudly holds a storied legacy as a family-owned enterprise. Rooted in a fervor for the artistry of Persian rug craftsmanship, this tradition has seamlessly passed through generations. In 2016, Mehdi Rahimzadeh, the present owner and third-generation successor, propelled the business's reach by inaugurating a branch in Toronto.

Guiding the Rug Club since 1980, Mehdi Rahimzadeh has elevated its reputation globally, actively participating in numerous international auctions. His influence has positioned him as a trailblazer in the Persian rug export sector, facilitating the widespread dissemination of these exquisite pieces, particularly to destinations like the United States, Sweden, and Germany.

The Rug Club stands as a steadfast symbol of tradition, expertise, and an unwavering dedication to showcasing the allure of Persian rugs to a global audience. The carefully curated collection reflects 40 years of meticulous travel and sourcing throughout Iran, resulting in a distinctive array of rugs that encapsulate the country's diverse craftsmanship and rich artistic heritage.


As the latest addition to our business, The Rug Club Toronto has swiftly established collaborations with renowned designers and design firms across the city.
