Internationally renowned Persian rug expert Masoud Mazaheri founded Bakhtiyar in the UK in 1992 following a long family tradition and becoming the 3rd generation in the Persian rug trade.
Spend time with Masoud Mazaheri-Asadi and you will quickly discover his passion and love for the craftsmanship of the rugs he sources. A specialist in the field and third generation in the trade, he advises auction houses, insurance firms and institutions to identify and value Persian rugs and carpets. As an authoritative figure within the industry, Masoud is often invited to share his expertise and insider knowledge with media outlets such as the BBC World Service to discuss the ever-changing market. Traveling frequently to source and commission pieces, he sees each as a unique work of art; the weavers spending innumerable hours and often years to hand-knot and complete each.
