About us

Holland Rugs is a family-owned and operated local business. Owner Andrew Holland has been in the rug business since 2004. Andrew has studied with rug repair and restoration experts to be able to provide expert rug care to Santa Barbara, Ventura, and LA counties.

Andrew designed and built every part of the rug showroom and rug washing plant. The flowing river rinse platform mimics historic methods used for thousands of years but with the added features of control and consistency found in a modern facility. Holland uses an automated belt feed dusting machine to beat the sand and dust out of a rug. A high tech centrifuge is used to get a wet rug 95% dry in just minutes. Andrew has a passion for sourcing special rugs from around the world. Providing a low stress “Here to assist you” attitude at their rug showroom is just one way their rug experience is a step above the rest.

In addition to a showroom of unique rugs for sale, he is very proud of the unique on-site oriental rug washing facility. It is designed to not only be the most eco-green textile washing plant in the world but also to be the most effective way to get soil from a rug. A wool rug should never be cleaned like a normal wall to wall carpeting. The detergents, heat, and extreme suction will damage a rug and won’t even get half the soil out that our full submersion system removes. When you have a rug that you want deep cleaned safely, only trust a specialized rug cleaner who takes the rugs to a plant to be properly washed and dried. You will be glad you did.
