Bahram Shabahang can trace his family heritage back to 16th-century Iran, where his ancestors oversaw the rug weavers in the king’s workshop. Today Orley & Shabahang’s showrooms are one of this country’s foremost sources for carpets from the different regions of Persia, including Bakhtiari, Tabriz and Malayer. The collection of antique Bakhtiari is particularly prized. Orley & Shabahang weavers use original techniques to create traditional and contemporary patterns. Larger pieces take up to six months to weave, but are unequivocally worth the wait. As Shabahang points out, “We are in the business of providing family heirlooms.”
