Nader Shah Afshar (1736-1747) remains the great folk hero and cult legend of many Persians, especially the very proud tribespeople who consider him one of their own. He rose from humble origins to become "the last great Asiatic conqueror" and changed the fate of a whole continent in a few brief years. His portraits gained a cult following and were depicted on numerous Persian rugs, mostly urban workshop creations. It is unusual to see him (or any portrait really) on a nomadic rug such as this.

What makes it more unusual is that the carpet is woven with two opposing directions for the motifs. Nader and the lower peacock border face one way while the other three borders and the horned antelope face the other.

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



“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 🇸🇦


Acquiring a piece from my dear friend Hadi is truly a journey. We start that journey with a lesson and detailed background on any piece that is of interest. After a thorough discussion regarding the chosen piece or should I say marvel, since Hadi's pieces are truly marvels, Hadi guides us into why he would advise us to acquire it or go for another of his marvels that would suit us more than the one initially chosen. This sincere advice always makes us feel that we are generously taken care of by Hadi. The learning process and honesty in guidance make us go back only to Hadi whenever we are looking for our next beautiful piece for our homes. All I can say is thank you Hadi for your impeccable guidance and service. Abdullah Al-Awadhi, Kuwait 🇰🇼
