Story

Exquisite.
One of the best B's in the biz. It relies on an archaic and timeless engine of three primary colors: the gold old red, white and blue. The aesthetic is abstract and minimalist and oh so contemporary for a 150 year old thing. A hexagonal white medallion is appended to two crown motifs, all floating on a breathtaking sea of bright red, extracted from the madder plant known taxonomically as Rubia Tinctoris. The red field is in turn hexagonal and is framed by a mesmerizing sky blue frame with nuanced abrash. The white border with its spacious setting rhymes with the inner medallion. The odd size reaffirms the great age. Perfect condition and an excellent bit of evidence to show why these carpets are indeed the top favorites for both collectors and decorators.

The beauty of detail

What our customers say!

Hadi Maktabi and his staff provide comprehensive and thoughtful services to collectors and textile buyers worldwide. His knowledge of antique oriental rugs and textiles, including many fine offerings from the Levant, is unsurpassed. We have been loyal customers for over five years and have visited his Beirut premises. He has worked with us upon several occasions to select the exact Ottoman and Levantine pieces we wanted for our collection. You can be sure of quality and honesty when dealing with Hadi. Penelope and Timothy Hays, Just In From The East Collection, Florida 🇺🇸

 

 

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 🇱🇧

 

I first met Dr. Maktabi as a lecturer on carpet history and was captivated by his passion for the subject. Only later I knew him as a dealer, though even in our financial transactions, Hadi has been a gentle guide and friend. He has understood my taste and interests and made wonderful suggestions, but never in a pushy way. That is to say I have enjoyed working with him on several levels and wish to continue our excellent relations and dealings far into the future. A. Harvey Pincis, formerly Dar Al Athar Al Islamiyyah Museum (Kuwait), Latvia 🇱🇻
