The new issue of @halimagazine is out. On the back cover you will see a beast of a carpet, a magical artwork of mythic reputation. Only four such signed Garrus carpets are known, the most famous being in New York’s @metmuseum.
World, meet the fifth.
Available for private viewing by prior appointment. Never published before and gloriously intact.

Two of my favourite backsides, both circa 1880, both rarely oversized, both perfectly intact. ☝️ Royal Tehran with mythical beasts & flaming lotus flowers in silk.
👇 Magnificent Serapi Heriz with all the lush sky blue and serene white you could wish for.

Just imagine how great they must look when the secrets within are properly revealed in a collector’s home .. #hadimaktabi #simplythebest #antiquerugs #carpetlove #babygotback #backsidekicks #derrière #officiallythebest #antiquerugdealer

Otherwise it would look like this.
For this reason, the three most vital factors to bear in mind when choosing an antique rug are: color, color & color.
