All Asad-Bakthiari kilims are hand-made in Iran by Turkic-speaking, semi-settled nomads using 100% natural and vegetable-died wools. Each kilim requires approximately four to five months to produce, depending on the size. The designer innovated in the fabrication process with a polyurethane weaving together with wool. The designs are limited to essential geometrical shapes, enhancing the novelty of the weave and mix of materials to speak out. Stimulated by this new approach, the weavers themselves have come to re-think their craft and re-engage with it. Thus often, the weaver's own input will figure discretely in the carpet - whether in a smart approach to a weaving dilemma or the personal handling of a particular design.

Born in Tehran, Iran in 1982, Taher currently lives between Tehran, Dubai and New York. Taher is a self-taught designer motivated to imagine objects, textiles and experiences. To date, he has created interiors, events, and lifestyle artifacts. His latest project is an electrifying take on modern kilim.
After Multimedia and Management studies between Canada and Switzerland and inspired by art from a young age, he opened a creative agency in Tehran, later expanding it to New York City. Juggling between various creative disciplines with particular interest in architecture, design and interiors, he started to self-produce limited edition objects. Asad-Bakhtiari seeks to reintroduce the traditional Iranian crafts while imbuing it with a contemporary functionality.
