Why do we have this craving for beauty?
It would have been simpler - and the rugs just as useful -
to leave the wool
To weave solid colors, or simple stripes.
But since the beginning, handmade carpets
have been adorned with clouds and
hunting scenes, ladders, medallions, niches for prayer.
Why bother? What makes us human?

About Us

Mike Joseph, Owner
Some Indianapolis Oriental rug collectors search the globe for pristine examples of ancient craftsmanship. Some fall in love with fine Antique rugs when they inherit their grandmother's Oriental. And some shop for the best of what's new in handmade carpets, hoping to create a worthwhile collection of rugs for their own grandchildren.

In Indianapolis, all Oriental rug collectors have something in common: Joseph's Oriental Rug Imports.

Joseph's has been a collector and respected authority on fine handmade Oriental rugs for more than fifty-seven years. They continue to earn the respect of Indiana's Oriental rug collectors because, like them, Joseph's collects and cares for Oriental Rugs as a labor of love.

Here, you'll find a magnificent accumulation of antique and semi-antique rugs from Persia, China, India, Tibet, Russia, Pakistan, and Turkey. Founder Mark Joseph is a leading expert and appraiser of antique Oriental rugs from around the world.

Now son Mike Joseph curates a new generation of fine rugs at Joseph's. He has broadened the family collection to include the latest, high design exclusives in modern area rugs: Lamontage felts, Tufenkian Tibetan Carpets, Asmara needlepoints and Aubussons.
