Kalaty Rug Corporation is a family business that has been setting the gold standard for area rugs for generations. Highly respected for its superior quality handcrafted rugs, the company has built a reputation for its ability to combine color and design to create a broad range of area rugs that portray “Tradition for Today.”
The family Oriental rug business originated in the early 1900s in Iran under Mirza Kalaty’s grandfather, and in 1979 Mirza Kalaty founded the company in the USA. Today, Mirza along with his five sons, Ramin, Mike, Farshad, Ariel and Kamran now run the company, and thus an impressive four generations of experience has gone into building the company.
“My vision is to link our grassroots with global buyers and create shared value for both.” – Nand Kishore Chaudhary
Nand Kishore Chaudhary (NKC) founded the idea of Jaipur Rugs in 1978 working beside 9 artisans on two looms. He started his business on principles of dignity. Over the years his simple idea has grown into a network of 40,000 artisans across India and clientele across 40 countries of the world who subscribe to a common philosophy of responsible manufacturing.
NKC’s greatest work has been in subverting centuries old practices that shunned the poor, women and artists. He has brought dignity back to the craft of rug making.
