Yet how did this remarkable “full service phenomenon” come about?
In the 1970’s, during their years in retail, the brothers who founded Nourison gained invaluable experience in understanding the supply issues that concern dealers in import goods.
When they decided to turn these insights toward a new kind of wholesale business, they knew that the key to success was their “know-how” in bringing in large assortments of rugs that were otherwise not easily available to the retailer. Nourison’s management attributes the company’s success to a simple observation. “We created new merchandising possibilities with reliably programmed collections. We addressed the retailer’s greatest concerns – selection and timely delivery.”
Over the years, Nourison became the market’s most diversified producer and importer of handmade area rugs, a company recognized both for the variety and the consistently innovative quality of its assortments. Today, the company has leveraged its unique design and production expertise to become the leading multi-product resource in the floor covering industry.

c. Hand Knotted rugs will shed less than Hand Tufted rugs.
