The Owner of Doris Leslie Blau – Nader Bolour Growing up in Iran, carpets were Nader’s playground, so one may fairly say that ancient weaves and luxurious materials flow in his veins. His family established Bolour & Sons in the 1920s in their homeland, gaining global recognition as the most trusted and respectable dealers in their field. Sensing the changing socio-political changes coming upon Iran, the Bolour family relocated to London where they founded Y&B Bolour in 1978. There, Nader honed his knowledge about the carpet industry under the watchful and expert eye of his father. The younger Bolour developed an uncanny ability to understand both the market and his buyers. Nader’s first meeting with Doris Leslie Blau, a great connoisseur of antique Oriental rugs, marked a beginning of a new era for the rug industry. Few years later, when the two of them met again, they formed a partnership. Nader purchased Doris Leslie Blau Gallery in 1997. Apart from being an exquisite dealer of rugs, Nader Bolour is a designer himself, which is reflected in the gallery’s wide array of custom carpets, made from the finest materials available for our demanding clientele. Whether you seek a rug from Nader or you desire his original design, you can rest assured that he is prepared to deliver a bit of soul to your home.
