Combining the age-old crafts of colouration and weaving and the wonders of cutting-edge technology and materials, Behruz Studio specialise in rug, kilim and related textile sourcing, custom rug and carpet design, carpet repairs and restoration, conservation, cleaning and insurance valuations.
The Studio was established in 1984 in Melbourne and rapidly grew to the point where the enterprise moved to a purpose-built location in Glen Iris in 2007. Its combined showroom, studio and gallery maintains three levels in order to create different display areas – a grand display on the ground floor, the design studio upstairs, and antique collections above.
The Studio’s founder, Behruz Aligorgi, was a man of overwhelming curiosity, sincerity and generosity. His relentless fascination with all things cultural and exotic led him to travel widely, absorbing both the old and the new, the east and the west with equal passion and eventually leading him to establish Behruz Studio. Behruz was equally at home discussing traditional and religious designs with traditional weavers from the foothills of Tibet as he was arguing the contemporary aesthetics of modern art, leading Behruz Studio to becoming a delirious amalgam of both the shock of the new and the shock of the old.
Behruz Aligorgi passed on a powerful gift. He had infused his passion for both the esoteric and the exotic, for traditional craftsmanship and the experimental to his wife, Roya, and his two sons, Amir and Omid who continue to steer Behruz Studio and their growing team with the same spirit of quality and generosity.
