Story

This is a complete and single 'bird' bag from the wandering Baluchis. Unlike others that are merely bag-faces, this is a complete bag with its intact kilim woven back side. In addition it is not one of a pair of bag-faces from a double Khorjin saddle bag but a single bag in its own right. The upper end or mouth is woven in Sumakh stitch flat-weave and does not connect to a symmetrical flap. This bag would have been filled and placed on the ground of the tent as is, much like a Turkmen Chuval.

Aesthetically, we see 7 peacocks in total. The central one, silhouetted in bright red, faces the exact opposite way of the other 6 which are outlined in calm aubergine purple. A unique tribal artifact by all means,

What our customers say!

“I 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. Hadi’s collection is second to none, and his knowledge and service is truly the blessing on top.” Amr Banaja, Public Investment Fund, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦

 

 

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

 

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 !
