Story

Exquisite. A tribal collector's dream, this pair of ultra ultra fine 𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘩 vanity bags take my breath away every time I get them out of the chest to look at them. They were woven with love and affection, most likely as a dowry piece by a young bride. The long tassels are beautifully braided with fluffy pompoms. The sumakh flat weave is boisterous in its energetic colors, a testament to the awesomeness of the natural organic dyes and the fantastic good taste with which they were chosen. At first sight they looked Shahsavan to me but the structure felt Qashqai. Later on I learnt they belong to a group of Shahsavan folk who migrated southwards and dwelled among the Qashqai, thus explaining the fusion of style and structure. They are known as Baghdadi for some reason in the old trade.

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 🇰🇼

 

 

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!

J’ai fait la connaissance de Hadi lors de la préparation de l’exposition « L’Empire des roses, chefs-d’œuvre de l’art persan du 19ème siècle » qui a eu lieu au Louvre-Lens en 2018 et à laquelle il a participé par le prêt de tapis exceptionnels. J’avais alors été impressionnée par ses connaissances et sa passion pour les tapis orientaux. Cette rencontre a marqué le début d’une collaboration riche et fructueuse. Elle a notamment permis au musée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac de voir ses collections iraniennes s’enrichir de plusieurs tapis et tentures dont certains n’ont pas leur équivalent dans les musées occidentaux. Ce que j’apprécie chez Hadi ? C’est son professionnalisme, son dynamisme et l’engouement qu’il a pour son métier !
