The Millefleurs group of Tehran rugs, locally known as Haj Khanomi, is perhaps the most recognizable and legendary group of Tehran carpets woven in the Qajar period, with the finest materials and richest patterns. This handsome masterpiece presents an incredibly dense field with a flowering vase and a cornucopia of floral delights all rising up to the apex of the mihrab niche. The natural dye materials are harmonious and attractive, complimenting the mosaic style geometric ornamentation. Perfect condition and collectible. A very similar item formerly in the royal Qajar collection at the Golestan Palace is currently on display at the Carpet Museum of Iran.
“You don’t just buy a rug from Dr Maktabi... It’s an experience, a rich one! You learn about history, culture & art. And more importantly you feel euphoric!” Dr Siamak Abolhassani, Expert Medical Care Clinics, Victoria, Australia 🇦🇺
I must say this one of the most enriching carpet purchase experiences I ever had. This was not a mere transaction but more an experience about art and history. Dr Maktabi's experience and knowledge in this space is second to none. Highly recommended! R.A., Doha, Qatar
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 🇰🇼
