For the lover of classical weaving comes this near 150-year-old court carpet
from the workshop of the esteemed designer, Hadji Jallili. Its regal archway
offers a dazzling view to an idyllic naturalistic landscape. So crystal
clear is its finely knotted drawing that the design appears etched while its
gorgeous palette of warm tones shimmers in silent glory.
