Mind-set in viewing Oriental rugs. Sometimes, customers begin their search with specifying colors they do or do not want. Our suggestion is, when you look at a Dilmaghani Oriental rug, you are looking at a work of art. One color or another need not be a deciding factor, tho, if a specific dominates in the rug, it would be understandable. However, most beautiful Oriental rugs, the Dilmaghani Crown Kermans, the Dilmaghani Tabrizes, and the many “one-of-a-kinds” have a large palette of colors and hues.
Think of the array of colors as you would see a beautiful flower garden. The colors blend and compliment each other. Colors you may not think of going well together have been worked into designs for centuries and enrich the depth and beauty with their variety. Keep an open palette – and if, you can, start your decorating with your Dilmaghani rug!
Dilmaghani reminds you that when you buy your Oriental rugs from us – you’re buying from the source. Better than going to the rug weaving country yourself – you won’t find the fine qualities as excellent prices in the tourist locations, ship board sales or even in the bazaars.

Example from our inventory of large oriental area rugs gallery: 16′ x 24′ Large oversized Silk antique Persian Tabriz ca. 1870 attributed to Hadji Jalili workshop.
3rd quarter 19th century antique silk Persian Tabriz.
Extraordinarily large and oversized carpet from one of the finest areas in history of hand knotted Oriental rug production. A highly collectible, very rare, unique and desirable carpet with extraordinary history, decorative value and historic importance.
A testament to the finest in Persian carpet weaving, exhibiting unparalleled accuracy to two of the most famous and historic carpets in the world: The twin Ardabil carpets. While the 16th century predecessors are woolen pile, this 19th century version is constructed of silk. Around the time this carpet was woven, a revival movement of renown Safavid dynasty weaving was underway. The concept of creating this carpet was most definitely built around knowing original examples existed. Whether a celebration of 16th century originals or a custom order for a Palace, there is no question the designing and use of materials seen in this carpet were intended to meet or exceed the originals with a slight shift. The color palette would have been an extraordinarily unusual derivation from any norm of the era, featuring a most unique green field accented throughout with bright naturally dyed silk. An exquisite example far beyond tradition, while doing so in the effort to maintain a sacred art form as an adventurous, yet tasteful and timeless carpet.
Outside of the historical importance, design lineage akin to that of the famous Ardabil carpets, harmonious and unusual color motif, is also the considerable size of this carpet. Hand knotted with a silk pile and silk foundation, this is one of the largest, if not the largest, antique silk Carpets in the United States.
Simplistic use of color within the main medallion seems to render a placid decorative outlining. Yet the initially perceived simplicity is deceiving and unusually gravitating: The highly intricate shadow outlines linger in the mind while your eye continues to explore the overall motif further. Delicate tendrils scroll throughout the carpet, rhythmically interlacing the motif with harmonious complexity. Large Lanterns hang from either end of the medallion with extraordinary intricacy only attainable by true master weavers. Highly detailed border consisting of floral-filled cartouches, alternating with pomegranates buffered by an interlinking arabesque outer minor border and repeating cloudband inner. Accents of aqua blue, cranberry and ruby pink make this an unusual and highly decorative carpet. There are few who would dispute this carpet may be considered the most masterful ode to the Ardabil carpets in existence today.
Finished at the top of the carpet is an identical signature panel to the Ardabil carpets: Reading in ancient Persian “Except for thy haven, there is no refuge for me in this world. Other than here, there is no place for my head. The work of a servant of the Court, Maqsud of Kashan, 946″
Woven in similar dimensions, knot density, and design to that of the famous Ardabil Carpets located in LACMA and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London dated from the 16th century.
Beautifully ornate hand knotted blue geometric Oriental rug made in Armenia. Wool pile and cotton foundation with wonderfully expressive geometric motif. Many dyes are likely vegetal. Overall design is rectilinear (geometric) with woven interpretations of flowers, animal and bird figures throughout. Sky Blue field with rust border, triple merged medallion with exterior minor guls dark blue and the center rust.
Design is fluid, and slightly asymmetrical, a relief from many new and highly rigid commercialized rugs. Hand knotted carpet exclusive to the Dilmaghani Company made with care by Armenian weavers.
