Story

This remarkable carpet depicts a famous scene from Persian legend as narrated in the epic poem, the Shahnameh. The hero Rostam faces off against his enemies including the villainous Ashkabous. The beautiful border is ornate with calligraphic poetry. Six signature cartouches in total explain that the artwork was especially commissioned by Mirza Ali Akbar Tabrizi as a gift, along with the inscription "Mobarak Bad". The Manchester Kork wool and fine weave, along with the choice of vegetable dyes, are hallmarks of the fabled Mohtasham workshop.

What our customers say!

Purchasing carpets from Hadi Maktabi was the epitome of professionalism and joy. Hadi is an expert curator, purveyor, historian and story teller. His passion, knowledge, professionalism and expertise are evident every step of the way. With a wide range of choices and prices, prompt service, and fast sipping, we had our carpets in Sydney in a matter of days. The ultimate flying carpet experience! Zeina Tebbutt, Sidney, Australia 🇦🇺

 

 

Acquiring a piece from my dear friend Hadi is truly a journey. We start that journey with a lesson and detailed background on any piece that is of interest. After a thorough discussion regarding the chosen piece or should I say marvel, since Hadi's pieces are truly marvels, Hadi guides us into why he would advise us to acquire it or go for another of his marvels that would suit us more than the one initially chosen. This sincere advice always makes us feel that we are generously taken care of by Hadi. The learning process and honesty in guidance make us go back only to Hadi whenever we are looking for our next beautiful piece for our homes. All I can say is thank you Hadi for your impeccable guidance and service. Abdullah Al-Awadhi, Kuwait 🇰🇼
