Albert Borokhim was born of Iranian descent from a family with a deep and honorable history in the rug business in Iran. He immigrated to the U.S. over 50 years ago to go to school at the University of Wisconsin in Madison for Engineering.
After falling in love with Madison, Albert was eventually persuaded by friends and family to open his signature store. His first store opened on Monroe Street in 1972. A favorite neighborhood for Madisonians, Monroe Street became an even more interesting neighborhood with the great rugs Albert was able to bring into the area. No longer did people have to purchase the run of the mill quality rugs and flooring, they could finally have rugs rich in tradition, heritage, and quality.
With an heirloom quality collection, Borokhim rugs became a staple for people who wanted to purchase unique and often rare rugs from around the world.
