About us

Mohammad Banie is the third generation of his family to be in the oriental rug business.  His brothers first started Banie Bros. in the U.S. in 1965, which he joined in 1972.  After three successful decades in business, his elder brothers retired in 1995.  At this point, Mr. Banie opened the well-known Abraham Rug Gallery in Mill Valley.  Although health problems forced him to take a leave of absence in 2006 he has completely recuperated and now is starting the Berkeley Rug House.  With four decades of experience, Mr. Banie has a vast knowledge of oriental rugs.  He offers this knowledge and a commitment to provide expert service in cleaning and restoration of your precious oriental rugs.  His skilled craftsmen can restore your valued possessions, and every attention to detail is guaranteed to you.
