Creating New Carpets Using Ancient Techniques
Saturday, September 10, 2016
Join us at the Orley Shabahang Gallery to learn about the ancient craft of Persian carpet making. Co-founder Bahram Shabahang will discuss the process, from the sheep to the loom and everything in between. Examples of Persian rugs both new and old will be presented for a touch and feel experience.
Bahram Shabahang traces his family heritage to 16th century Isfahan, Iran. The patriarch of the Shabahang family was the son-in-law of King Tahmass Safavieh. He oversaw the work of the rug weavers in the King’s workshop and passed this on through the family. Mr. Shabahang holds a degree in architecture although his passion has always been carpets, which led to the creation of his first store in 1973.
This meeting will be open to the public.
