Our story began in 1985, when Paul Sacco (Director) imported his first consignment of hand knotted rugs while travelling through Pakistan where he served as Physician for the Australian national under-19 cricket team.
Since then, our parent company IMS Corp has imported over 500,000 unique and authentic pieces, directly from their countries of production including Iran, Afghanistan, India & Pakistan.
In 2006, Paul, with the help of his three sons; Alex, Chris & George, launched PersianRugs.com.au and a number of online distribution networks, pioneering the way handmade rugs are sold online in Australia.
Today, PersianRugs.com.au is Australia’s largest online seller of hand knotted rugs with over 20,000 satisfied customers and more than 50,000 rugs sold Australia wide.
Headquartered in Sydney and serving the Australian community, IMS Corp is a family run and proudly Australian owned company since 1993.
PersianRugs.com.au is founded under the principle of providing Australians with genuine handmade rugs imported directly from their source of production.
Our scouts travel through Iran, Afghanistan, India and Pakistan to find the best handmade pieces; we don't stock machine-made copies – at PersianRugs.com.au your purchase carries real cultural value.
At any one time we stock over 10,000 unique pieces in our Rozelle, Sydney warehouse outlet, providing the most complete collection in Australia. Our strong buying power guarantees the best possible prices.
Our team has the soul focus of providing the best selection of genuine handmade rugs and kilims, hand picked to suit Australian tastes and conditions.
