Our story began in 1985, when Paul Sacco (Director) imported his first consignment of handwoven rugs while travelling through Pakistan where he served as Physician for the Australian national under-19 cricket team.

Paul's love and knowledge of traditional rugs grew. Between travelling and establishing relationships with international dealers, our parent company, Industrial Mercantile Services was formed and began importing regular shipments of authentic handwoven rugs from around the world.

Since 1993, we have imported and sold over 500,000 unique rugs and authentic rugs to more than 30,000 customers Australia wide.

In 2006, Paul, with the help of his team and family, launched PersianRugs.com.au and a large distribution network, changing the way handmade rugs are sold online in Australia.

Today, PersianRugs.com.au is Australia’s largest online seller of handwoven rugs with thousands of satisfied customers and a perfect positive feedback score.
