Dr. Taher Sabahi who lives in Torin, Italy is a great Oriental carpet scholar. Sabahi fell in love with rugs 45 years ago. He has written 18 books on different types of rugs and kilims. His latest book on 500 years of rug weaving in Kerman, Iran was published in Italian last year. This book is being translated into English and will be published in late 2009.

Taher Sabahi is the Editor in Chief of a prestigious bio-monthly journal valled Ghereh, (Knots) which is published in Torin, Italy in English, German and Italian.

Dr. Sabahi is planning to come to the U.S. for a series of lectures and presentations. He will visit Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, and Washington D.C.
