    NAZMIYAL's Rug Specialists - New York City

    For the past several decades Albert Karmely has perhaps been the most important and influential rug dealer in the world. One could say that he was born into the business. Already by 1900 his family were established rug dealers. During the early twentieth century, his father and older brothers were major importers of Persian rugs for the British ruling elite in India, as well exporters of Indian rugs to the western world. The family business was also active in Iran and Europe, and they were actively involved exporting Persian rugs to other Middle Eastern regions. Karmely himself, however, was born in Eastern Iran in the city of Meshad. He initially attended High School in Tehran although he continued his secondary education in Italy and Switzerland, completing his studies in Economics at the University of Lausanne. It was this cosmopolitan background that made Karmely fluent in six languages.
