From the 30th September - 2nd October 2016 we will be hosting our bi-annual exhibition of fine Persian rugs in Salisbury’s historic Medieval Hall in the Cathedral Close. With the lifting of western sanctions against Iran, we will be bringing an exciting new array of hand-knotted rugs- modern and traditional, new and antique, along with runners, kilims and hand-block printed Persian tablecloths and throws. It will be a wonderful opportunity to see our beautiful new collection from Masoud's latest buying trip.
Take a step in to The Medieval Hall and you will be transported from the heart of Wiltshire into the bustling bazaar and the plains of Persia- from the delights of the Qashqai nomadic tribe near Persepolis to the treasures of the historic bazaar in Isfahan; full of intricately detailed pieces- you will see wonders not seen before.
Find old and antique carpets bursting with a history waiting to be told, or new carpets waiting to have their history written with your family and its generations to come.
Bakhtiyar was founded in the UK by Masoud Mazaheri-Asadi the internationally renowned Persian carpet specialist, who will be at the exhibition personally to express the wonders of the Middle East and talk about Persia and its illustrious history, culture and art. He will also be giving expert advice on the cleaning, repair and restoration of carpets.
