Atiyeh

  • The Atiyeh has been deeply involved in the rug trade for well over 100 years. The Atiyeh are an Arab Christian family. The ones I know best are Tom and Leslie Atiyeh who run Atiyeh International a importing and rug producing company located in Washington State. Tom's uncle Governor Victor G. Atiyeh is the chairman of the board but as best I can tell Tom and Leslie run the day to day operations of the company. Up until the fall of the Shah in 1979 Atiyeh was a major producer in the province of Kerman. Many of the antique Laver Kerman rugs have that distinctively Atiyeh look. After 1979 Atiyeh International set up rug production in China (Communist occupied Republic of China on the mainland.). As far as Chinese rugs go Atiyeh is as good as they get but I am not a fan of new Chinese production. Fortunately through the help of Vice President Seyed Hossein Mar'ashi Atiyeh International has again returned to Kerman and is producing splendid rugs near Rafsanjan.

  • One of the great Designers of Persian carpets was Georges Sirmadjieff who was manager and chief designer for the Atiyeh's in the 1930s.

  • RugNotes: Monday, Atiyeh International is back in Kerman Iran
