Royal Antique Rugs

Antique Rugs - Sales, Restoration, Cleaning, Acquisitions, Appraisals


Royal Antique Rugs (RAR) is a century-old business, started and currently owned by the Lotfi family. We specialize in the buying, selling, cleaning and restoring of antique Oriental rugs, tapestries, aubusson or other hand-made woven items. Originally founded in Tehran, we relocated our headquarters to, and have been serving the greater Toronto area since 1996.

With this truly specialty service, Cindy (the Kingston store manager and rug specialist) was integral in providing all the necessary information for the rug descriptions (via online screen sharing) so that RAR's clients know exactly what they are looking at instead of just a plain photo.
