Dusk at Gallery Persia

Gallery Persia has a superb selection of antique and contemporary Rugs, Carpets and Runners , with regular new additions.

The beauty of oriental rugs and, in particular, persian rugs has long fascinated mankind.

Based in the city of Inverness, Scotland, UK Gordon MacDonald of Gallery Persia, specialises in old and antique Eastern tribal and village rugs, decorative carpets, kilims and tribal bags from the rug weaving and kilim weaving areas of Persia (Iran), Afghanistan, Anatolia (Turkey) and the Turkmenistan regions (Central Asia). He also has a good stock of contemporary rugs and carpets.

All the items in the on-line catalogue are individual and unique. Gallery Persia will happily conduct an extended search on your behalf if you have any specific requirements. We also offer a restoration, repair, cleaning, valuation and postal service ( including abroad).

Gallery Persia is happy to assist with home visits and advice throughout Scotland and in particular, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Elgin, Perth, Dundee, Stirling and Glasgow. Due to our extensive network we can also offer this service to many areas of England. 

Due to our many loyal contacts in Iran, you can now commission your own personal hand made rug or carpet specific to your requirements using high quality wools and natural dyes. We can 'book' a loom for you and help with design. The weavers are some of the best and highly respected for their work.
