Aslam Qureshi

I’m Singaporean by birth and the last of a family of four. Close to 60 years ago, I took my first infant steps on Persian carpets. The love for carpets came with ‘’mother’s milk’’ and during my entire upbringing, I have been surrounded by carpets on walls and floors. No wonder that at an early stage of my life, I decided to follow in my father’s footsteps.

Carpet knowledge is a fascinating evolution and whilst individual taste of course vary, - quality cannot be argued and or challenged! And this is where I can make an important difference and with 50 years of daily experience, I’m always able to tell the difference and advise my clients accordingly.

I know the greatest carpet weavers by name, and during my many travels, I have met many and exchanged experiences. I’m in a position to explain and point out what makes a carpet great, - perhaps the maker, design,  rarity, color scheme, density of knots etc., - and  why a certain carpet may represents a long term solid investment.

Why have I decided not to sell commercial carpets nor copies of particularly Persian silk carpets? For the inexperienced eye, copies may look attractive, - but they are frankly speaking carpets without a soul, like any other mass produced product. And it is 100% certain that they will never appreciate, - on the contrary and furthermore the durability is limited!

I want your carpet to tell a story and I want you to be proud of having a unique and 100% genuine handmade carpet on your floors, which is not only a visual delight, but represent an investment you will look after and cherish!
