Our History

Ali Amini was born in Iran into a family with a rich history of carpet making.

In 1980 Ali started his career as a fashion designer, and ran a clothing company selling his designer fashion ware through a few specialty boutiques. He became aware of his fascination with the arts, in addition to his sharp business mind. Still, he yearned for further knowledge in design and arts.

Influenced by his own family, Ali later developed a strong passion for hand made rugs. As a hobby he began to make, repair and design hand knotted and hand woven rugs for his customers. To gain experience, Ali started from the root by repairing and eventually working his way to designing carpets.

Upon the opportunity, Mr. Amini moved to Canada circa 1992 and started building his name in the carpet industry. By 1997, Ali established Golden Rug Company in Vancouver. The journey did not stop there as now Ali Amini is one of the most well-known and respected names in the Persian rug business.

Ali continues to develop very strong relationships with many famous interior designers. His reputation is well known in Vancouver and his customers range from all over North America.

To this day Ali travels the world to personally select the finest variety of hand woven rugs, tapestries, pillows, saddlebags, and other assortments of handmade items.
