Emmett Eiland and his brother Murray founded the Oriental Rug Company in 1969 in Berkeley, California. From the beginning, the Eilands made buying and research trips to Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey and the Caucasus. Through newsletters, books, exhibitions, seminars, films and public talks, the Eilands helped create the fertile oriental rug scene in the San Francisco Bay Area.
In 1975 the brothers parted ways, and in 1979 Emmett's wife Natasha joined the business. Today, they're the proud owners of the oldest fully active rug store in Northern California, located in a spacious 8000 sq. ft. showroom in Berkeley. The Eilands continue to travel in search of excellent rugs — they are pioneers in the natural dye movement and groundbreakers in bringing the finest oriental rugs to online buyers.
Emmett's rug book, Oriental Rugs Today, is now in its second edition, and continues to be the authoritative text on new oriental rugs made with traditional techniques.
