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 magnificent carpet belongs to the middle period of Tudeshk weaving when they shifted to a denser knotting with higher knot count, and incorporated silk highlights. It is older than the later ones with whiter tonality.

To me personally there is no surprise, event or frankly anything that gets me more excited than the purchase of a treasured piece of understated artwork such as that of a proper vintage/antique carpet. The sourcing, grading and authentication of these pieces is no small task but is of the highest importance. Through the respected dealer Hadi Maktabi all that is guaranteed, and rest assured the one thing I can guarantee personally as a client is a first class service from the initial selection process till it gets delivered right to your door step. It was an undeniably special experience, with hundreds of carpets to choose from, will definitely be visiting again. Thank you dear Hadi. Habeeb Al Monawer, Kuwait 🇰🇼
