The workshops of the acknowledged master designer, Hadji Jallili, created a limited number of carpets that mark the epitome of the Court weaving tradition. Marrying finely drawn, classical motifs with a distinctive earth-tone color palette, his finest carpets, such as this majestic representative, are superb art investments.
