Story

This sprawling carpet was woven at the east end of the fabled Silk Road, in the Yarkand oasis. The Uighur town is situated in East Turkestan, the furthest extremity of the Islamic world, which is today known as the Xinjiang province of China. The design is of ancient Biblical origin and represents a growing and seemingly non-ending pomegranate tree. The fusion of cultures from various points of the Silk Road is also evident in the border which borrows traits from 18/19th century Ningxia and Peking Chinese carpets.

What our customers say!

I must say this one of the most enriching carpet purchase experiences I ever had. This was not a mere transaction but more an experience about art and history. Dr Maktabi's experience and knowledge in this space is second to none. Highly recommended! R.A., Doha, Qatar

 

 

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. Alsagoff, Singapore

 

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 🇱🇧
