Mahmoud & Alyssa Kosyaem
When you shop at Magic Rugs, you’re shopping with us! This is a family business, and we operate the entire store ourselves.
We met by happenstance when Alyssa was a tourist in Dubai and a customer of Mahmoud’s. We bonded over our love for weaving and fiber, and eventually Alyssa moved to Dubai. Now we work together to create a special shopping experience for residents and tourists.
Mahmoud’s family has been in the carpet business for hundreds of years. It’s in his DNA! Most of our carpets are made in Aleppo, Syria, by his family.
Pictured here is his father weaving a rug by hand on a traditional loom - just like the one we use in Dubai.
