My name is Morteza Faraji. I was born in the town of Ardabil, Iran. All my life I have been around rugs. My father decided to start his own business in the rug-weaving industry. In my early years, he built a factory for his rug-weaving business right beside our home. The family business kept growing as more and more people purchased our family rugs. After a few years of developing a good reputation, my father started to work with rug purchasers from oversees.
In 1977, I came to the United States without knowing what to expect. As the years passed on, I worked at random jobs, taking whatever was available at the time, anything to help with the expense of my education. In 1988, I decided to follow in the footsteps of my father, and I started importing handmade rugs. At first, I was selling rugs on consignment, until I could find a store that suited my needs. At last, in 2006, I managed to procure the perfect space in Occoquan, Virginia, where I operated Artaville Rugs for 15 years. In 2021, I relocated my store to the historic town of Purcellville, Virginia.
