Story

Tudeshk is a tiny village situated halfway along the 300 km long old Isfahan - Nain highway. During the second quarter of the 20th century carpets were made there that were markedly finer and more majestic than their legendary counterparts in Isfahan itself or Kashan. For a period of two decades or so some of the finest Persian carpets came out of Tudeshk. This ended when an earthquake struck in 1957 after which its weavers migrated to Nain and set up carpet production there.

This formidable pair of rugs reflects some of the best properties associated with Tudeshk. The saturated burgundy tones, the asymmetric or directional drawing, the knot count, the finesse of the original fringes, the suppleness of the handle.. As good as it gets. These factors are typical of early generation Tudeshk weaving in the 1920s. Pairs are always harder to find than single pieces, even more so when they are this exquisite and in such perfection of condition.

The idea of purchasing valuable rugs and other artwork online from an overseas seller is daunting for several reasons, not least of which is the fact that, not being able to examine and feel the rug for yourself, you are never entirely certain that the origin, age or condition of the rug corresponds with the dealer’s description. For me, I could never take this step unless I had absolute trust in the integrity of the dealer, and my recent experience with Hadi confirms that my faith in him was well placed. Every detail of the antique rug expertly explained by Hadi was accurate and when I finally received the actual rug, it turned out to be even more stunning than his photos depicted. F.
