Hardly any green carpets from the 19th century survive. This is due to two main factors. Very few were ever made, first of all, due to the cultural Islamic aversion to stepping on green floor coverings. Secondly, there is no natural dye that yields green meaning that dye makers mix yellow and blue. Given that most yellow dye materials fade away with time, an organic and totally natural process, this means that most green rugs ended up becoming blue fifty or a hundred years later. This is only the second green Farahan I have ever seen and it is a beaut. The weaver was shrewd in purposely creating a wide open space around the medallion. It's meant to let the green shine. And boy does it shine.

What our customers say!

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 🇰🇼



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 🇱🇧
