Are you looking for a beautiful and durable carpet to add warmth and style to your home? Do you love the rich and intricate designs of hand-knotted rugs? If you answered yes to these questions, then you are in luck. Calgary is home to some of the best Persian and Oriental rug stores in Canada, where you can find the perfect rug for your space and budget. In this blog post, I will introduce you to some of them and tell you why you should visit them.
Saramoon Rugs is a modern and newer business in this category. It is owned by Sara, who used to be an interior designer and architect in Iran. Saramoon specializes in handmade Persian rugs. Her fast-growing business focuses more on the online world than other competitors. She also runs an engaging Instagram page where she shares information about Persian rugs. Recently, she started selling rugs in person in collaboration with Reclaim Vintage furniture store.

What I like about Saramoon Rugs is that they have a very authentic and high-quality collection of Persian rugs with clear and transparent pricing, which you can check on her website.
Boft Fine Rugs
Boft Fine Rugs is owned by Ali Keshvari and Sarah Jacobs. It is one of my top picks for rug stores in Calgary. They have an exceptional selection of rugs imported from Iran and other countries.
They also offer in-home trial, professional cleaning, and expert advice on selecting a carpet.

Rug the Rock - Your Alternative Online Option
We are not located in Calgary, but we offer free shipping and returns to Calgary and other parts of Canada.
Newborn brand in this category. We started our online sales alongside in-person sales in 2022.
We, Ellie & Hanif, both grew up in Iran, and thanks to our extensive network of rug experts, we are able to source genuine rugs from rural areas of the middle east, then ship them directly to Canada, which results in offering handmade rugs at a fraction of their retail price. Believe it or not, they are often at lower prices than many rug stores in Tehran and Istanbul, the capitals of Iran and Turkey.
We offer a diverse range of wool rugs suitable for high-traffic areas, some of which can be passed down through generations. Additionally, our collection includes collectible/investment rugs like antique and silk rugs, known for their value retention over time.
