Finely woven with exquisite natural dyes, this is a rare prayer rug from the beautiful old city of Malayer where niche or mihrab carpets were not usually made. Theslender vase, woven with undyed ivory wool, and the turquoise blue bowl on which it sits capture the gaze and entice the viewer. The millefleurs style flowers that rise up to the arch are elegantly executed. A pair of architectural columns support the mihrab on the sides; they are quietly presented leaving narrow negative spaces of midnight blue tucked in by the border.

What our customers say!

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 🇱🇧



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. Alsagoff, Singapore


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
