Testimonials

* I bought my first Persian rug from Majid and his wife Bita over 25 years ago and I have been hooked since then. As 3rd generation Persian Rug expert, Majid and his wife Bita have been the most considerate and honest people I have ever met and I trust his expertise and advice on each and every piece that I have purchased from them over the years. I am so proud of the beautiful collection of rugs I have now from antique Persian Sarouks, intricate Persian Isfahan, Persian Tabriz, a restored Nain that looked like it was ready for the garbage, and a few more. Between Majid and his wife Bita, they restored the Persian Nain and it is on display in the living room of my home and looks beautiful. I drive 90 minutes to do business with Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery as Majid and his wife Bita are the only rug dealers I will buy from or trust to clean my rugs.
I have recommended them to others over the years and they have equally been very happy with their collections, knowledge, and genuine concern for their customers and their needs.

* I've been taking rugs to Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery for cleaning and repair since 1992, so it's been twenty-six years! Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery even stored some of our rugs for us when we moved. I continue to take my rugs here because they perform authentic, old-school, hand-done, artisanal-style rug care at an excellent price - They do a thorough cleaning and three-day airing out. I understand that they are not in business for their personality, and the owner is an expert in rugs and a very interesting man if you take the time to get to know him. He told me everything about my rug that I didn't know.
I appreciate the care and time they put into their professional handling of each item that enters their store.

* We have several valuable and classic oriental rugs. At first, we only came to have them cleaned however after we realized that Majid, the owner, could also restore the rugs, we left 6 of our precious rugs to be restored---Magnificent is all I can say. This group is honest, has a great inventory, and will do the best job possible on any restoration.
Do not even bother with anyone else.

* I am so impressed with these delightful people. They have now cleaned both my Kilim and Oriental rugs and they did an outstanding job.
They seemed to care as much for my rugs as I do and suggested repairs for my most valuable rug that will ensure a longer life. In addition to their fine work, they are clearly lovely people with great integrity.
I am so glad I found them!

* We are so happy that we found this place. Our dog threw up on our expensive wool rug. I made it worse by trying to clean it and then Majid was recommended to us. He is very nice to work with and did an outstanding job cleaning our rug. The yellow spot that was very large and visible completely disappeared! He also was incredibly nice to work with.
I highly recommend this place!!

* Oriental rug cleaning is the best!!! And I tell you I have used others but they just don't compare. Their professionalism, expertise, and efficiency are awesome. They showed up on time and did an incredible job on my oriental rugs- getting them to look so clean. I can't even remember when last I saw them so clean.

* Friends! Read this entire post.
ShaNei Oriental Rug Gallery is owned and operated by the BEST in the rug cleaning and repair business!
Whether you have a priceless heirloom hand-woven rug or maybe one not so expensive...
ShanNei Rugs cleans and repairs all types of rugs.
True story - recently I bought a large area rug off of Folsom Findings Yard Sale for a fairly cheap price.
It needed cleaning and the previous owners' dog had chewed the fringe around a corner or two.
Majid owner of ShaNei Oriental Rug Gallery picked up my rug and returned it.
It looked like a brand-new rug! The cleaning process brought out all of the vibrant colors.
They also hand-repaired the fringe.
Most surprisingly for me though, was the information I was given about my cheap yard sale purchase - turns out the rug I bought was worth a lot more than I could have imagined.
I was given instructions on how to care for the rug in the future.
HAPPY CUSTOMER!
Excellent service and I was extremely satisfied!
If you have a rug(s) - contact ShaNei Oriental Rug Gallery for all your rug cleaning, repairs, and appraisal needs.
They truly are the kindest and most knowledgeable business!

* Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery did an awesome job cleaning and repairing my Antique authentic Persian Turkman rug. I was very impressed with the quality of the service and the price was very affordable. I also had them clean and repair my Persian-style Bokhara-style rug. The repairs were wonderful and the cleaning was amazing. Being new to the area, I chose Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery because they have a very high reputation with local rug owners.
I will definitely use them again.

* We have been using ShaNei Oriental Rug Gallery for many years now for having our rugs cleaned and repaired. We own several authentic Persian rugs, both large and small, and they always do a beautiful job and good prices. Also, the customer service in arranging pick-ups and deliveries is excellent.
Very happy customer!!

* Majid is very knowledgeable and a magician when it comes to repairs. I was ready to discard a rug that had been left in the home by a previous owner; Majid assured me this rug was worth repairing and cleaning. I didn't recognize the beautiful rug he returned and could not tell where the repairs had been made. My only regret is that I hadn't taken a before picture to compare to an after picture.

* Majid has cleaned and repaired several of our Asian carpets. I did not know what I had because I had inherited the carpets and he educated me on them. The repairs and cleaning were expertly and timely done at reasonable prices. Although I live out of town, I will not take my carpets anywhere else.
Highly recommended.

* When I was looking to clean my Persian Rugs, I was lucky to find Majid. My rugs were thoroughly repaired on the ends and the thin areas of my rugs were revived. All repairs are made with the use of traditional ancient rug tools and cleaning methods. I also purchased custom pads for each rug. What a difference!! My rugs were returned to me in better condition than ever, with a historical and regional rug name tag!
The service is Superior!

* Majid has cleaned a dozen of my Persian/oriental carpets and also repaired a few of them. I have always been happy with the results and appreciate his attention to detail and his knowledge.
I would definitely recommend his business.

* Thank you for restoring my family oriental rugs. I was so nervous as they are irreplaceable. I highly recommend ShaNei Oriental Rug Gallery, they are experts! The cleaning brought back those rich colors of old oriental rugs.
My family can now enjoy these clean beauties.

* Amazing. My dog chewed an enormous 6-inch hole in my parents' beautiful Turkish rug (brought from Turkey almost 30 years ago, and not replaceable). Hoping not to be disowned, we brought the rug to Majid who was honest about whether it could be repaired, what it would cost, and how long it would take. The result was stunning--the hole was re-weaved perfectly, and you can't tell there was ever any damage.
Absolutely wonderful. Thank you, Majid!!

Heather S.

* My blue Persian rug was seriously damaged by moths during almost two years in storage. I thought it was completely ruined and was heartbroken over the loss. As a last-ditch effort to save it, I called Majid. I'm so glad I did. While we couldn't save the entire rug, he was able to rid it of pests, kill the larvae, remove the damaged exterior edges, and re-tassel the ends. My family heirloom is now smaller, but still gorgeous and will remain a part of our family for many more decades.
- I cannot thank Majid enough for his hard work, honesty, and integrity. He assessed my rug and gave me a full scope of work, estimate, and timeline. He then met each of his promises with high-quality work, on-time delivery, and a big hug to help celebrate our success.
- THANK YOU, Majid, for being a consummate professional and for keeping the fine art of rug cleaning and preservation alive and well.
- If you need your high-end rugs cleaned or repaired, GO SEE MAJID. You will be very glad you did.

* Majid and Bita are true professionals and artisans in the world of rugs. I hauled 2 rugs from my garage-had been in there 20 years-to have cleaned them. Wow! Not only did I receive a FULL history of my rugs-when I picked them up-they looked new and well restored! One of the rugs turned out to be an antique that Beata lovingly hand stitched to create a remarkable piece-I cannot tell you how much I appreciate their craftsmanship, expertise, and excellent service. My rugs look gorgeous-I am dropping off 2 more today.
- Thank you, Majid and Bita-a true personal service that I will continue to recommend. Pricing is extremely fair-all the work is hand done-unbelievable! Thank you!

* I had Majid from ShaNei Oriental Rug Gallery give me an estimate on our 10 x 13 Afghanistan rug that needed cleaning. Majid was very professional and courteous and gave me a reasonable estimate. Majid delivered the rug several weeks later.
- I was very pleased with the results.

Pat S.

* Very professional and honest! I shopped around the Bay Area for a reasonable price to clean, repair and evaluate our antique rugs. Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery was definitely the most affordable! They are extremely knowledgeable and did an amazing job repairing.
- I would strongly recommend them to anyone.

D. T.
from: Martinez Ca


* I was very anxious about getting my beautiful rug cleaned, especially as it was going to be cleaned off-site. I should not have worried. It came back absolutely like new every stain and mark gone, the colors are vibrant again. The service I got was excellent from the lovely staff, who kept me up to date on delivery time etc. They even did an especially late delivery for me as I wanted it back for my guests' arrival the next day.
- I would definitely recommend this company, great investment.

Paul G.

* We are very happy with Shanei Oriental Rugs Gallery's professional services. We have a few Persian Rugs repaired and cleaned and could not believe the restorations. Not even could tell where the damage used to be afterward.

Nasser S.
from: El Dorado Hills Ca


* I want to thank you for repairing my rugs. This is only one of a few. You cleaned and repaired areas of my rugs. I know a Persian rug can cost thousands more. These are Persian designs hand woven and made in India and Pakistan.
- Nothing can ever be perfect, but imperfections can remind you of the good people you meet in life.

Suzanne S.

* They did a great job on some that my puppy chewed about 6 years ago. Also, reasonably priced!

- Great job.

* Majid came to our house to see if our Persian rug could be cleaned and repaired. Our puppy used it as a chew toy and pee pad. Majid said no problem he could repair the rug. It took a little time but happy to say our rug looks brand new.
- We needed to ship to New York City and Majid met me at the UPS store with the rug. He carried it in and is happy to say it is now arriving at my nephews' Tuesday. I sell Real Estate in the area and I can assure you I will tell my client and other agents about the quality service we received.

* This family was so nice and easy to deal with, they cleaned and repaired my 12x18 Persian carpet and did a wonderful job, I could not be more pleased.

Sondra B.
from: San Rafael Ca


* It has been 10+ years since I last visited the Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery.
- I remembered the craftsmanship and care given to my rugs. My tribal rug needed repair and cleaning. I was not sure if it was worth saving, even though I love it. What was I going to do?
- I remembered Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery and sought out his experience again. I was thankful he was still located at the same address. His work is of high quality. His knowledge of valued/cherished rugs is the best. I am a retired high school teacher who was in a time of need.
- Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery was able to repair my antique tribal rug, which tells a story all of its own. I find his prices to be the best, both: reasonable and fair. Plus,.... excellent customer care and communication.
- He wants you to be happy and satisfied with his work.
- I am!

Janet T.

* I've had a Persian rug for about 30 years that needed repair and cleaning. I mailed them my rug and within weeks it was finished and sent back. It looks great! I would highly recommend them for any rug needs.

Jennifer O.
from: Gold River Ca


* We have a beautiful Egyptian rug that had unfortunately been quite soiled by our dog buddies. Being relatively new to Sacramento, I turned to online reviews for someone who could handle not only cleaning but deodorizing this lovely piece. I loved the pictures on their website showing how Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery literally bathes your rug in special tanks to get them truly clean through and through.
- I am so glad I found them! Our rug looks brand new and not only that, it SMELLS brand new, too! There is no odor of perfume or solvent, just a fresh, clean scent.
- They were very pleasant to deal with and I recommend them without reservation.

Liize D.

* I discovered this business when I first moved to Fair Oaks. They did a great job of cleaning my three rugs and repairing the fringe on an heirloom from my parents.
- Majid is a consummate artist and weaver and a source of great historical information. I enjoy every visit.

Linda B.

* We brought all of our Persian rugs to Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery to be cleaned and repaired. The rugs were returned in beautiful condition.

- The colors were again vibrant and rich. We are very happy with the results, and glad that we trusted in their expertise.
- We will definitely use them again in the future to maintain the beauty of our rugs.
- Thank you Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery!

- Customer service is amazing and I appreciate that they pick up and drop off the rugs. Fast and efficient!

* Puppy might have chewed a hole in a beautiful rug that we love. Believe me when I say we loved the rug more than the puppy at that moment in time. Good thing he's cute.
- Thank goodness for Majid at Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery. He took it, gave me a price that I thought was too low, and said it would take two weeks to fix it. He was a popular man and it took a little longer than that, but it was well worth the wait. It is a testament to his work that when he unrolled it to discuss the process of mending the rug I was looking at the wrong spot. I could not
 tell where the hole had been.
- A class-act, family man who knows his trade. We will be back for any weaving requests!

Jeol G.

* I wanted a professional & reliable company to clean and repair some antique Persian rugs that I've had in my garage for a number of years. I found Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery and decided to try them because of their great reviews, in spite of the fact that it's an 85-mile drive one-way from my home.
- I met Majid when I arrived and he was extremely informative. He told me how my rugs were made, and why there are different color variations in the patterns. He let me know that these rugs are works of art and one-of-a-kind since they're handmade. I found Majid to be so kind, and he & his wife are delightful! I had Majid clean, repair, and appraise my rugs, and they turned out beautifully! He also has many, many rugs for sale, both antique and modern.
- I HIGHLY recommend Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery for its quality and friendliness!

Rhonda B.

* Very glad I found Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery to repair a large hole in the center of a custom-made area rug. My favorite rug was placed under a coffee table in the living room for 21 years. Now along came our new puppy and he chewed a ragged 4-inch hole clear through.
- The repair blends in perfectly.
- The rug was cleaned and now looks better than it has in years.

His selection of rugs is high quality and they are all beautiful works of art. I highly recommend Shanei Oriental Rug Gallery.
