One of the all time best Bakhshayesh rugs in the world. Perfect condition. Amazing in weave, rich with materials and endlessly attractive to the eye. The pile is full and mostly consists of undyed natural colored sheep's wool with hardly any abrash nuances--a rare feat for such rural cottage rugs. This ivory tonality is a decorator's dream and in fact works excellently in any type of setting. The medallion intriguingly contains cloud band forms and a pinwheel motif, relating it to the Chondzoresk Caucasian rugs woven in the Kazak district a bit further to the north. This is a rare historical item that shows us how organically and culturally related the Heriz district and the Caucasian Khanates were up to this period. This automatically sets the carpet at a date prior to 1881 when the Russians closed the border. The fact that it is woven on woolen warps further supports this. Six π™π™–π™§π™¨π™π™–π™£π™œ motifs floating in the field hint at a further correlation. Charming lazy lines appear in the field, a technical term that describes a certain craft habit in the villages of Anatolia and the southern Caucasus.

The beauty of detail

What our customers say!

To me personally there is no surprise, event or frankly anything that gets me more excited than the purchase of a treasured piece of understated artwork such as that of a proper vintage/antique carpet. The sourcing, grading and authentication of these pieces is no small task but is of the highest importance. Through the respected dealer Hadi Maktabi all that is guaranteed, and rest assured the one thing I can guarantee personally as a client is a first class service from the initial selection process till it gets delivered right to your door step. It was an undeniably special experience, with hundreds of carpets to choose from, will definitely be visiting again. Thank you dear Hadi. Habeeb Al Monawer, Kuwait πŸ‡°πŸ‡Ό



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.

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‡°
