About Uri Jacobi Oriental Carpets

Uri Jacobi Oriental Carpets in Chester, Cheshire

After many years of experience as an Oriental Carpet Specialist in London, Uri Jacobi has established himself for over 20 years in Chester.

Uri is a well-known name in the industry, and is a third generation carpet dealer - with a wealth of knowledge aspiring from inherent family blood ties, evolving from his Father’s origins from Persia and his Mother’s from Russia. For two centuries, Uri Jacobi’s family have acquired fine rugs from the markets of the Levant and Far East; they have travelled to distant and inaccessible places in order to bring back rare examples of lost craftsmanship; they have lived and worked throughout Asia and the Middle East. Throughout those years, Uri Jacobi’s ancestors have acquired extensive knowledge about rugs, passing on their precious wealth of wisdom from generation to generation. The sum of that acquired understanding now rest with Uri Jacobi - and you will find that he is eager to share it with you, so that you too may come to love the lore, language and beauty of Oriental carpets and rugs.
