Prior to the Ziegler led Revival of the 1870s, Farahan was one of the foremost weaving centers in Persia. Leading Qajar dignitaries set up private workshops as side businesses and tapping into the area's superb wool and the locals' natural flair with weaving. This masterpiece in the soon-to-be baptized Zilli Sultan style is an awesome exemplar of that.

Saffron dyed with a remarkable central axis leaving the sides of the field quite vacuous in a most charming way. The border is another tour de force with its sequence of delicately drawn flowering vases. This style was to be termed Zilli Sultan as of the 1880s. Observe the row of tiny booths hugging the border from the edge of the field and wonder at the level of attention, dedication and skill needed to create the two pyramids of color either side of the medallion. This artwork is one of those that makes me proudest to own and is almost impossible to replace.

The beauty of detail

What our customers say!

As a carpet collector of 30 years, I have noticed a decline in the amount of truly unique and high quality carpets on the market. I have also noted a decline in the knowledge of merchants, generally. Hadi Maktabi stands against this trend as a both a curator for and an educator of his clients. His offerings are well-researched, museum quality carpets that are both singular and expertly chosen. In dealing with Hadi, I have experienced excellent communication, a high standard of service and extremely pleasant interactions. Warren D., Hong Kong πŸ‡­πŸ‡°



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


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 πŸ‡°πŸ‡Ό
