And here is a brief description of the featured artist/collector of this exhibit:

‘Sam an Woven Art Collections’ demonstrates the deep passion I have for Persian handwoven arts which has accompanied me since being introduced to the richness of this heritage in my early childhood. Before attending architecture school, I started reading and learning about the history and tradition of Persian textiles. My growing interest led me to officially join the Heriz Persian Carpet institute where I acquired my practical knowledge back in Iran in 2001.  After few years of studying Persian Flat and Pile weaving, I acquired my diploma with distinction from the vocational Persian Carpet institute in Iran.

In this exhibition, I would like to proudly present a selection, dear to my heart, of woven artwork which has been meticulously chosen and gathered over a period of several years in Iran'
