Story

A unique tribal gabbeh depicting a football game rendered in a nomadic manner--cute, charming & utterly splendid. In a way it shows how even remote tribal societies were catching up to the modern world in the early 1900s. For some reason the weaver threw in a few gazelles on the side. Note how all the players are facing the viewer, as if posing for a photograph. Awesomeness!

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 🇰🇼
