Persian Carpets & Rugs
Our other services
Majid's wide knowledge and great range of rugs made our decision to purchase any easy one to complete. He brought several rugs to our home, helped us set them into place and generously worked with us to get the best result. And, best of all, we got the benefit of his sale prices. A good experience.

My Mum purchased a lovely wool and silk rug from Majid. The quality of the piece is evident and the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. They even retrieved some rugs from storage for Mum to compare. Highly recommended.

We have been dealing with Majid since 2007. The knowledge that he possess is second to none. His service is outstanding, nothing is too much trouble. Bringing a selection of carpets to our home to see them in the room is a wonderful service. He is my first and only point of call when I am looking for a new rug.

I purchased two kilim rugs online. The colours are even more lovely than I expected from the pictures, and I am very impressed with the quality of the rugs, especially for the price I paid. The communication and service I received from Majid was excellent. I look forward to purchasing more rugs in future.

Majid provided us with outstanding service by patiently guiding us through the process of choosing a rug that would last us a lifetime. We were able to take serval home to see whether they suited our home. His deep knowledge and passion for the different traditions or origins for each rug gave us so much confidence in choosing the right rug for us. He was able to show us a wide range of designs at both his shop in Canterbury and the warehouse. We would unreservedly recommend Majid Person and Modern Carpets to anyone who is considering adding an amazing addition to their home.

Over a period of 15 years or more I have purchased several beautiful Persian rugs from Majid. During this time I have sincerely appreciated his patients and the time he has spent with me explaining the differences between rug types and the intricate patterns. Majid’s responsiveness and the way he conducts his business is excellent.Recently I decided to gift one of my larger rugs to my son who lives in a rural area of Northern Ireland. When I mentioned this to Majid he offered to pack the rug and send it on my behalf using a professional courier service. The carrier provided a tracking number but the rug arrived at my son’s home in a matter of days with no issues.Once again Majid has been of great assistance. I decided I would like a similar Heris rug (purchased from Majid previously) for a another room. Majid has managed to source one for me and arrange the shipping. He advised me I am under no obligation to buy the rug should I not be completely satisfied with it. Such great service.

Majid is the real deal. He has such a thorough knowledge of carpets and rugs, and is truly an expert in the field. We felt confident that with him, we were getting a really high quality, authentic and beautiful piece that will last for years. He was also very patient with us while we deliberated, and he went above and beyond our expectations to ensure that we were 100% happy with our final choice. Thank you Majid and team!

Majid and his team did a wonderful job repairing a much loved Berber carpet that had been chewed by my puppy. When I picked up the carpet I struggled to find the repair. Thank you for taking such great care of my carpet!

I purchased an abstract designer rug made in Agra using recycled Sari silks. Being in lockdown I found the rug online. I was hesitant in making the purchase so rang Majid who was extremely helpful and was able to safely deliver the rug the next day. I loved the rug and it fitted into the room perfectly. I would definitely recommend Majid and would support this business again.
06:06 28 Aug 21
My wife, Victoria and I have known Majid for nearly 20 years. During that time we have purchased over a dozen rugs from him. We have always valued and appreciated his judgement and honesty in advising us with our choices and we hold him in the highest regard.We can definitely recommend him to anyone wishing to purchase a quality carpet.
02:20 12 Jul 21
The team at Majid are extremely helpful without being "pushy", they have an extensive range of beautiful rugs to suit a variety of spaces.I'm very happy with my purchase, and when I'm in the market for another rug, I will return.
03:03 13 May 21
What can I say, Majid what a fantastic and beautiful collection of rugs. Bought one on Saturday and today came back and bought another.Your customer service, knowledge is exceptional. Buying a rug was important and to not feel rushed and the help you gave in the final decision was paramount.I highly recommend Majid Rugs if you are looking for that special feature rug in your house. Well worth the trip.

I would highly recommend this business to anyone looking for a rug/ carpet for their house. There was a plethora of stock to choose from. The customer service was outstanding, both Majid and his co-worker went above and beyond to make sure we chose the right rug/ carpet for our home. Majid offered suggestions but at no time was he pushy. He even closed the retail store to take us to his warehouse to view more rugs. We were absolutely delighted in the end with our decision, and would have no hesitation returning to this business if we ever needed another rug/ carpet.

I have known the owner of Majid Carpets for over thirty years. A man with integrity, Majid is honest and trustworthy. I have bought several carpets from him. Recently I bought a large Persian carpet which is now the centrepiece of my daughter’s new home. Majid provided an excellent service. Thank you Majid.

My recent experience of buying a rug from Majid in Canterbury was positive from start to finish. After some previous bad experiences with other retailers I was a little wary, but the range, the quality and the customer service were all amazing. Majid is completely genuine in his passion for and knowledge of Persian rugs. My partner and I are extremely happy with our beautiful living room rug and we intend to go back for our next room makeover. Thankyou, Majid!

So well cared for, thankyou so much!! Majid has a wealth of knowledge, so interesting to learn about the carpet as I didn't know much about it! Thankyou!!

We had our 2 rugs taken away to be cleaned by Majid.We were super pleased as they came back looking new.The rugs were bought from Majid many years ago & it is a pleasure dealing with him.
02:22 31 Oct 20
Very happily, I have a number of rugs from Majid. To my horror, I spilt a tumbler full of orange juice and turmeric on one, of a contrasting and light colour. Majid was able to quickly clean the rug, so well that there is now no evidence of the spill. I am most grateful!

Excellent service and an excellent product. I know that this rug will be enjoyed for years.

We’ve purchased all of our Persians from Majid and there’s nobody else we trust more. From our first meeting to our most recent, Majid has been nothing short of amazing! Professional, generous and patient. We have now acquired 6 incredible rugs over the years from Majid, and he was helpful each and every time. Great quality rugs that we consider pieces of Art on our floors!!Highly recommend! 5 stars! Thanks Majid -April and Daniel.

The whole experience shopping with Majid Carpets has been excellent. I'm very happy with my rug choice, it's beautiful and seeing it in my home brings warmth and joy. My rug was delivered promptly and arrived very well packaged. Thank you Majid for such excellent service.
01:02 28 Sep 20
I would highly recommend Majid Carpets for purchasing hand produced rugs of an outstanding quality. I purchased during lockdown and received my beautiful rug, hand-delivered by Majid, the next day. What amazing service.
00:57 14 Sep 20
I was initially a little apprehensive about purchasing a rug online during lockdown. But Majid made it so easy, sending me lots of photos and even a video of different options explaining there features and origin etc. He then made a no contact delivery the next day, dropping a couple of options at my door and waiting outside while I tried them.They were both beautiful quality it was difficult to decide, but I love our new rug. Majid was so patient and helpful throughout the whole process. High quality rugs at a good price, I highly recommend Majid carpets.
06:23 30 Aug 20
Delighted to buy and recently receive a wonderful rug from Majid, chosen online and sent to the UK. I was reassured by the thorough and timely information he provided, and the fully tracked and swift shipment. Great service and I have no hesitation in highly recommending Majid Carpets for both home and abroad.

Majid has provided outstanding service, personally helping me to choose two magnificent rugs for my new home. He dropped multiple rugs in for me to view and take my time to select the right ones. He's highly professional and personable and never pushy for a sale. I highly recommend Majid Carpets for a huge selection of magnificent carpets and rugs of the highest quality at very reasonable prices.

I would like to assure anyone who is apprehensive about buying a carpet from a ‘carpet salesman’ (over the internet) that it is safe and easy. I am a retired professional man and I would be happy to speak with anybody if they wish to understand more from an experienced customer’s perspective.I have been interested in Persian carpets for most of my professional life. In the last 15 years almost all the carpets I have bought have been from Majid. He is the leading Persian national living in Australia who imports carpets directly from his sources in Persia, to which he returns frequently. He comes from a carpet weaving background; his mother was a carpet weaver in the holy city of Qom — he is a knowledgeable and experienced professional: it is sacrilegious to think of him merely as a ‘carpet salesman’.Most of the carpets you see on sale in outlets in Australia (and the ‘West’) will have come through traders in Turkey and Europe (for goodness sake, never buy a carpet if you’re on holiday in Turkey). Eventually they find their way to Australia, after more than one round of price increases, with the attendant cost increase and concern they may not even be what they purport to be.Majid is a man of knowledge and integrity. I stake my reputation on the fact that if you buy from him you will receive excellent advice and value and you will be able to trust in the provenance and the quality of your rug or carpet with certainty.Buying carpets over the Internet (from a trusted source like Majid) is reliable, because the appearance of the carpet, the colours and the shades, and the detail of the pattern, the fineness of the knotting, are all quite clear and accurate in modern high quality photography, such as the pictures that Majid posts (he will supply you with further pictures of any particular piece that seriously attracts your attention). The quality and the feel of the piece when you have it on your floor can be taken as a given, so the colour and appearance in a good photograph is much of what needs to be considered.The inflation adjusted cost of these carpets and rugs has dropped steadily over the course of my lifetime; it is now less than it has ever been — there has not been a better time to buy in my lifetime.You could get a taste for it by starting with a small postie (doormat sized) rug (for around $300) — compare that to a plastic mat from Bunnings or the acrylic horror-shows at the local carpet warehouse. I could go on for pages, but I will finish now by saying that if you have a feeling and an eye for finer things, then you may profit by exploring Majid’s extensive range of Persian carpets (there are Indian and Afghan ones too).If you wish to speak with me, to learn more and assure yourself that I am no shill, I would be delighted to talk to anyone who calls about the pleasures of beautiful carpets.

Majid lives and breathes rugs from around the world. He has wonderful knowledge and we could listen to his stories about the individual designs, and materials for hours. Majid showed us a photo of his sister weaving her own rug with help from his Mother. Majid’s mothers loom is in the showroom.What we really appreciated was that we could take a few rugs to have a look at in our own environment. This was invaluable. If you want to a professional who knows the magnificent history of the rugs and designs, talk to Majid. We didn’t need to look elsewhere.
09:04 11 Jul 20
Majid has gone above and beyond in helping us find a carpet for our living room. Such a friendly and patient man, he has an extensive range of beautiful carpets and sourced a few different ones for us and delivered them to our door the next day. We couldn’t choose, so we ended up with two beautiful carpets! Genuine and handwoven, I especially loved that Majid could tell us about the significance of the different regions, patterns and techniques.

Majid is a Magic Carpet man!! He is super helpful, knows his product and can lay his hands on exactly what you need in an instant. Have purchased rugs from him for many years and they are all so beautiful - still. If you're looking for a rug this is the place to come.

Saved my $7,000 Naeen Persian carpet by washing out red wine stains.I spilt a glass of red wine on my beautiful (& expensive) aqua Naeen Persian rug. Despite my best efforts with carpet shampoo, the rug had conspicuous red stains.I rang Majid, who showed real concern, the next day. Majid asked me to rush the rug to him (on a Saturday) so he could get it washed.Four days later I collected the cleaned rug and all stains within the carpet have vanished. The rug is perfectly restored, fresh & bright. Thank you Majid & your carpet shampooers for saving my beautiful rug!
