Girls Group Learns About the Art of Rug Weaving at Nejad Oriental Rugs in Bucks County PA

Adventuresome Young Ladies Get Set to Test Drive a Carpet from the Nejad Showroom

A girls youth group, recently sightseeing in Doylestown, payed an impromptu
visit to the Nejad Rugs showroom at 1 North Main Street. In their tour of
the premesis the young ladies became very excited and happy to see so many
gorgeous, colorful rugs in a splendid array of different colors and design
styles. No, they didn’t get to ride a magic carpet, but they did have the
opportunity to learn the basics of how handmade rugs are woven, and how the
materials and techniques used in the process of rugmaking have remained
consistent over the centuries of textile history – a time-honored traditional
art form passed down from generation to generation. While some of the girls
were more impressed by the idea of the level of skill and discipline involved
in the actual weaving of the rugs, everyone, it seemed, equally enjoyed the
end products of all that labor!

Satisfied Customers Equals Repeat Business

When a business offers a product that is unique yet desirable, plus aesthetically appealing yet practical,  plus has investment value and enhances quality of life,
plus that business offers services to maintain that product for as long as it is owned –
that all adds up to repeat business.

Case in point: a New Hope PA client who recently purchased this hand-knotted wool genuine Persian Hunt Tabriz rug from Nejad is the same client who had purchased rugs from our Doylestown showroom, located at 1 North Main Street, on at least a few occasions in the past, prior to having made  this most-recent purchase. Thanks to all our customers for their continued loyalty!

Featuring over 150 Vendors, live music, food court, family activities and a multi-town Bike Race, the 23rd annual Doylestown Arts Festival held on Sept. 13 & 14 was a great way to celebrate the incoming fall season and to enjoy the final warm days of summer.

The event, a two-day juried festival of local Bucks County artists, was held outdoors in the heart of beautiful Doylestown, spanning State, Main, W Oakland and Hamilton Streets – and putting Nejad Rugs Gallery Showroom at the hub of the activity. Some of the rugs on display in front of the Nejad showroom ( see photo – inset ) included Southwestern Rugs, Bright Rugs and Bucks County Hook Rug Collections – some of the more festive and colorful-themed rugs in the Nejad vast inventory of rug styles.

Nejad Rugs participated in the 23rd Annual Doylestown Arts Festival

Nejad Rugs has long been an established retail business serving Doylestown and the surrounding Bucks County communities from the same location at the corner of Main and State. From the vintage hand-gilded gold-leaf lettering on the Nejad display windows to the informal yet elegant 2-story showroom interior to the Nejad full-service customer approach this is a business that has a genuine organic quality and feel to the brick and mortar. Come in and browse the rugs on display in a relaxed and comfortable showroom setting – business hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10AM – 5PM and Sundays 12PM – 5PM, Monday and evenings by appointment.

Besides the area rugs on display some of the items being offered by the array of vendors included handmade soaps, candles, hardwood furniture, stained glass panels, jewelry, handbags, clothing, photographs and much more. The event also featured the Thompson Bucks County Classic, the second annual bike race from the borough of New Hope all the way to the festivities of the Doylestown Arts Festival. Of course it was a great opportunity for local artists to display and sell their artworks and the turnout was impressive – the weather made to order – and Bucks County’s largest event of the year was, decidedly, a success.

Discover Doylestown Main & State

Discover Doylestown Main & State – Doylestown Shopping & Resturants

Doylestown is a place full of history and culture and the passionate people that create it. Nejad Gallery Importer of Fine Oriental Rugs, owned by Ali and Theresa Nejad, located at the corner of Main & State streets, has been one of the most important and established businesses in Doylestown since its inception 30 years ago. Nejad has provided superior quality and service to its customers who travel from all over the country including New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, to receive the Nejad experience. After customers visit Nejad for all their Oriental rug needs and canvassing the rest of the Doylestown shopping district, it is no surprise to find Nejad’s customers looking to explore the town’s local eateries.

The restaurant scene in central Doylestown is an important piece in Doylestown’s character. From the intersection at Main & State streets and expanding West on
State street and North on Main street, Nejad’s customers cannot find a place that won’t satisfy their hunger needs, from Italian and seafood, to steak and comfort food, and
various cafés in between, Doylestown has it all.

Today however at the Doylestown Business Alliance meeting, was a showcase of all the fine cuisine this town has to offer in its downtown area, and I was privileged to be a part of it. The event was promoting the annual restaurant week in Doylestown that is to take place next week. As you can imagine, the tasting and sampling of exclusive menu items was endless with more than 20 local restaurants on the scene. My favorite was from MOM’s, aka Maxwell’s on Main. The general manager Jason Long was serving a perfectly cooked piece of salmon accompanied by a corn salsa and a creamy sauce that had a kick, to top it all off. A close second, but on the other end of the spectrum, were the spoonfuls of chocolate-covered caramel being handed out by Puck’s own Chef, Michael, who I had the pleasure in meeting. On the other side of the room, through the hall, was the drink sampling contest. The winner here, for me, was the Freight House, which was serving up a deep crimson-colored shot infused with cranberry and orange flavors.

All in all, this event was a huge success, firstly, for my taste buds, but, secondly and more importantly, for the local restaurants that work hard day in and day out to provide the people and guests of Doylestown with the utmost quality in their food, drinks, and service. An event like restaurant week brings Doylestown residents, visitors and the entire business community together (not only the restaurants but all businesses) into the downtown area where the people and business owners alike get to know one another through good food, good drinks, and great laughs.

Nejad Gallery’s Great View of Marker Dedication Ceremony for Doylestown Lenape Native Americans

Main and State Street in Doylestown

It was an amazing treat to have such a great view of the Doylestown Historical Society’s dedication ceremony of a historical marker at State and Main Street.  The marker was set in place to honor The Lenape Native Americans important role in Doylestown’s history.

Native Americans from the Delaware Valley and elsewhere were dressed in magnificent traditional costumes in vibrant bright colors that showed off beautifully in the afternoon sunlight. Many families lined the streets to enjoy the dedication that was highlighted with a spirited performance of traditional dance and music.

The importance of our Native Americans’ history and current crcumstances has always been one of my great interests.  While travelling in New Mexico we were fortunate to have the opportunity to visit reservations and view their rich heritage of hand-woven textiles and pottery. Nejad Gallery has also proudly supported the ANA Americans for Native Americans nonprofit organization that raises money for humanitarian efforts in the Southwest, started by the late attorney Bill Eastburn and his wife Connie.
