Shoreshi Isfahan Silk Base

Shoreshi Isfahan Silk Base

  • Number 321

  • Type Workshop

  • Origin Isfahan

  • Style All Over

  • Material Wool & Silk

  • Size 353 x 217

  • Age 1910


This is one of the oldest Isfahan carpets around, from the school of Shoreshi who, along with Agha Ahmad (see elsewhere on this website), was the foremost carpet artist in the city in the period 1890-1910. The age of the carpet is reflected in its uncommon pre-1920 proportions which fit in more with Qajar era interior architecture. It is woven on a silk foundation making it incredibly supple and soft to the touch. The allover pattern is a variant of the Shah Abbas design but not the same one that later appeared on many Isfahan carpets post 1950. It has more in common with the lattice vinery carpets of the Vase-type carpets of Kerman of the 1600s. A unique find and a great looker for any elegant interiors.

What our customers say!

J’ai fait la connaissance de Hadi lors de la préparation de l’exposition « L’Empire des roses, chefs-d’œuvre de l’art persan du 19ème siècle » qui a eu lieu au Louvre-Lens en 2018 et à laquelle il a participé par le prêt de tapis exceptionnels. J’avais alors été impressionnée par ses connaissances et sa passion pour les tapis orientaux. Cette rencontre a marqué le début d’une collaboration riche et fructueuse. Elle a notamment permis au musée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac de voir ses collections iraniennes s’enrichir de plusieurs tapis et tentures dont certains n’ont pas leur équivalent dans les musées occidentaux. Ce que j’apprécie chez Hadi ? C’est son professionnalisme, son dynamisme et l’engouement qu’il a pour son métier ! Hana Chidiac, Curator of the Middle East Department at the Musee Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac, Paris, France 🇫🇷



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 🇰🇼


You can't only be a customer of Hadi Maktabi. While his main purpose is rug dealing, he starts with story telling and ends with history selling. That's what I call high-end art curating and closing it all with an entertaining friendship. George El Hani, CEO Levica, Lebanon 🇱🇧
