Master Weavers – Although all antique rugs hold their own unique charm and patina, some are revered as the crème de la crème because of their quality and provenance. These pieces are often woven by master weavers that are respected and known for their weaves both in quality and design. Very few rugs would be considered masterpieces but the below selection were all made by the best of the best!

The more familiar master weavers such as MohtashemHaji Jalili, and Kermani created some of the finest quality antique rugs to ever come out of Persia. Other rugs are known not for the weaver that created them, but the company that commissioned their construction. One such example is that of Ziegler and Co., a company that commissioned high quality rugs from the Arak region of Iran to be made for Western tastes. These pieces are prized for their decorative design and colors that veered away from the traditional Persian compositions.
