about us

Sasanian Persian Rugs is run by Sasan Mohammadi whose family has been involved in textiles and rugs for many generations. Sasan ('Sas' to his friends and customers) has lived in Southampton for the last 25 years. After completing his studies, he started trading in the long traditional art of Persian rugs in his second home town, Southampton, for the last five years from the showroom at Bitterne Triangle. Our extensive stock ranges from fine city rugs, through colourful, hard-wearing village rugs to fascinating tribal pieces, including kelims, soumaks, bags and trappings. All sizes and prices are available, from small decorative pieces to room-size carpets. We have a very good selection of older rugs, including antiques, as well as a full range of new items.

We are very happy for our customers to browse with no pressure to buy. We realise that choosing a rug or carpet is not to be rushed and it is in our interest that you should end up with a piece you're truly pleased with. For this reason, we offer a home approval service so that you can try a rug in your own home if you find it hard to decide in the showroom

Although hand-made rugs are very tough, they may need attention from time to time. We provide routine cleaning and a professional restoration service, from minor fringe repairs to more extensive work. We can also provide written valuations for insurance purposes.

If you are buying from overseas, we can arrange shipment. We ask for payment in advance and guarantee immediate refund(minus Postage) on return of any rug with which you are not completely satisfied.
