An excellent example of nomadic art from the mid 1800s. This is a complete and intact bedding bag (called ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ง๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฉ) which would be placed with the central section on the ground within a tent, and tied alongside each side of a horse, donkey or camel during migration. Its purpose was to store the various bedding items of a nomadic household: pillows, mattresses, covers etc. It is quite rare to find ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ง๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฉ bags in such perfect condition and usually they appear in disjointed fragments. They are excellent examples fo functional weaving art.

This attractive example is radiant with its gorgeous natural dyes. Woven in sumakh technique (all in one piece on one loom at one time) with the central section in kilim.

Purchasing carpets from Hadi Maktabi was the epitome of professionalism and joy. Hadi is an expert curator, purveyor, historian and story teller. His passion, knowledge, professionalism and expertise are evident every step of the way. With a wide range of choices and prices, prompt service, and fast sipping, we had our carpets in Sydney in a matter of days. The ultimate flying carpet experience! Zeina Tebbutt, Sidney, Australia ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ


โ€œI practically furnished my entire home with carpets from Hadi. The process was not only a joy but it was also a learning experience for me. Hadi was super helpful in identifying the right pieces for my home that would both work with my taste, budget, sizes required and that would be a good investment for my family. Hadiโ€™s collection is second to none, and his knowledge and service is truly the blessing on top.โ€ Amr Banaja, Public Investment Fund, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ
