Antica Persia is a family run business in two locations – Italy and Canberra.

We have been in Canberra since 2008.


As we import our rugs directly from the country of origin, we have the advantage of offering rugs that are very price competitive.

We specialise in imported, high quality, antique, classic and contemporary rugs. All our handmade rugs come with a guarantee of authenticity. We also stock some wonderful rugs that are made to be displayed as wall hangings.

To meet every budget we also offer low-cost modern machine made rugs.

Our rugs can transform and enhance any room in your home. There is a rug to suit whatever is your style – classic, traditional, contemporary or minimalist. See our photo gallery for inspiration.

We are not just a rug shop – our interior designer can provide you with advice on what will suit your décor best.

To ensure you are completely satisfied with the purchase we offer a variety of options to help you acquire one of our handmade rugs including a free trial of the rug in your home to make sure it suits and lay-by (terms and conditions apply).

Come in and see us and start your love affair with these exotic rugs.
