Story

Easily one of the most beautiful carpets I have encountered in my career. This Qajar masterpiece is inspired by the famous garden carpets of Karabagh, the pride of Russian Empire weavings. It stands out from those for a number of reasons and is one of two of type only that I have seen (the other is in my mother's salon!). First, the finely spun wool and the lavish silk highlights. Then we have the unbelievable white field which brings out the stunning pinks and reds of the roses and geraniums. The pattern, in addition, is more ornate and curvilinear and truly brings to mind a real life rose garden--you can almost smell the aromatic scent of the flowers! Was it a special commission? Certainly I would say. Its nonconventional proportions indicate it was created to match the dimensions of a very specific hall. Mouthwatering.

What our customers say!

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!

“You don’t just buy a rug from Dr Maktabi... It’s an experience, a rich one! You learn about history, culture & art. And more importantly you feel euphoric!” Dr Siamak Abolhassani, Expert Medical Care Clinics, Victoria, Australia 🇦🇺

 

As a carpet collector of 30 years, I have noticed a decline in the amount of truly unique and high quality carpets on the market. I have also noted a decline in the knowledge of merchants, generally. Hadi Maktabi stands against this trend as a both a curator for and an educator of his clients. His offerings are well-researched, museum quality carpets that are both singular and expertly chosen. In dealing with Hadi, I have experienced excellent communication, a high standard of service and extremely pleasant interactions. Warren D., Hong Kong 🇭🇰
