A Sufi's Farahan

A Sufi's Farahan

  • Number (sold)

  • Type Village

  • Material Wool

  • Style Medallion

  • Origin Farahan

  • Size 308 x 207

  • Age 1850


A mystical antique carpet, imbued with cultural resonance and material excellence. A number of small format rugs from the Farahan district have survived, mostly with Saruk weave, that have natural color or undyed wool with a medallion in the middle. They are associated with Sufi dervishes for quite apparent reasons.

This is different. The weave is classical Farahan of the pre-Ziegler, pre-1870s type. The size or scale is quite larger than the usual ones and the quality is superb. My guess is this was made for a high ranking dervish in a Sufi mystical brotherhood. Extremely rare and amazingly beautiful.

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 🇸🇦



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 🇰🇼


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
