I left Iran as a young man and settled in the US, and the seeds that were planted in childhood took root here in my adult years, first as a photographer, and later as a purveyor of fine Oriental rugs. Now three decades hence, those seeds have fully matured, and have taken form as the Art Interpreted Collection of fine hand-made Oriental rugs.
When artwork is rendered as an Oriental rug, the intent is not, and cannot be, to produce a precise copy of the original work. Rug-making is an art unto itself, with it’s own character and nature. The result must serve both the essence of the original artwork, and the nature of the woven textile medium. Colors, materials, the marriage of form and function—these must respect both the original artwork and the finished rug. Art Interpreted, in this sense, is both a curiosity and a journey—and the process is demanding.
To view our rug selection visit us at our Newly Opened Eastview Mall location (between Pottery Barn & Willams Sonoma). Or contact us by phone or our contact form with any questions.
