A Brief History
The late master Haj Agha Reza Seirafian (1881-1975), the founder of Seirafian Carpet, had been, at first, a highly reputable private bander (Sarraf) in Isfahan, but his enthusiasm in this career did not hamper his love of genuine carpets. This deep-rooted love inspired him to open a new chapter in the history of the hand-woven carpet. His dream was to produce supreme, genuine, and unparalleled carpets. To realize his dream, he employed the most talented designers and skillful weavers and used natural dyes and the best raw materials. As a result, his carpets soon became the most popular among traders and interested individuals. He was also able to give sufficient assurances about the quality of his works to the demanding carpet market by weaving his family name (Seirafian) either on top or at the bottom of the carpets he produced.
The late master Sadegh Seirafian (1922 – 2005), one of the sons of Hag Agha Reza Seirafian, pursued this jprofission after he graduated from high school. Having considerable interest and the same dreams, he combined the dexterity of the skillful masters with his innovative thoughts. He began to produce carpets while he was also helping his father. Since then, those unprecedented works marked as SADEGH SEIRAFIAN have attracted hundreds of enthusiasts, artists, and highly reputable collectors of high-quality hand-woven rugs and carpets.
In some texts, you may find the name Seirfian in variant spellings such as Sayrafian Serafian Sirafian Sayrafiyan, Sairafian, etc.
