Husret Abi Ruby Rugs

Husret Abi, Owner

modern love for an ancient craft

Inspired by his father, Sabahettin Abi, Husret embarked on the adventure of owning his own rug business in Istanbul, Turkey called Ahtamara Rugs which is still open to tourists today. When he moved to the United States, he knew he wanted to focus on creating a new business of fine oriental rugs.  His love of this ancient and beautiful handwoven art shows when he talks about the history of rugs and their designs.

Even though his first love is luxurious traditional designed rugs, Husret truly loves the new modern looks which is clear to see in the Ruby Rugs showroom.
