Story

Carpet pairs have been considered the ultimate collectibles in Persia for generations. Among major production centers, Tehran pairs are far rarer and harder to find than those of Kashan, Isfahan, Tabriz and Kerman.

This pair is equally sublime and sweet, relying on soft tones and elegant drawing. A majestic flowering vase is buoyantly upheld by a dense and richly ornamented landscape of blossoming vegetation. This rich garden is topped by a serene sky blue mihrab niche. Interestingly, the border reflects the same style and tones of the interior, which is a rare feature on any type of carpet.

The most desirable natural dyes are on display: pinks, greens, yellows, beiges and light blues. There is a very noticeable absence of indigo and burgundy, the two most dominant tones on classical Persian carpets.

Both rugs in the pair survive in excellent and perfect condition and have been together since the XIX Century. They are ravishingly beautiful and indisputably collectible. Yum.

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

 

 

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 !
