The Nazmiyal Collection was founded in 1980 by Jason Nazmiyal. The Collection features a 5,000 square feet (460 m2) gallery with carpets from Persia, Turkey, the Caucasus, China, Egypt, Europe, Morocco and the Americas, including rare carpets from the 16th century, and textiles from the 4th century.
The Nazmiyal Collection website provides historical information on the major periods of carpet production throughout the Middle East, the Americas and Europe. The various periods are illustrated by pieces housed in museums throughout the world and the Nazmiyal collections.
Nazmiyal Collection provided carpets for use as backdrops in an exhibition of works by artist Paul Thek at the Whitney Museum. The Morgan Library and Museum installed a Nazmiyal carpet during a renovation of their library in 2010.
