Our Story of hand knotted rugs


In 2000, Husret Abi, Owner and Founder of Ruby Rugs in Berkeley, embarked on the adventure of owning his own handmade rug business in Istanbul, Turkey.  Today, this business is still thriving and open to tourists. 

When he moved to the United States, he knew he wanted to focus on creating a new business of fine hand knotted 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 stylish looks of modern rugs which is very clear to see in the Ruby Rugs showroom.
