AlBahie said the auction takes the category to the next level by offering true works of art alongside an informative insight into the craftsmanship and history behind the carpets on offer.

The determining factors taken into account when assessing carpets include the condition, knot count, mix of colors, design, maker, the materials used, production size, and even where the carpet was produced.
