THE COMPANY, A FAMILY HISTORY
The history of Golran is first and foremost the story of a family from Mashad, a Persian city, that now stands near the border between Iran and Russia. This is where the adventure began for Hajizadeh Golran when, in 1898, he formed the company that, today, specializes in premium quality antique and contemporary oriental carpets. It is a story of true passion for the art of Persian carpets, which has endured across the eras and distant countries. A family united by shared goals and values has ensured the survival of this tradition to the present day, underpinned and guided by these same principles.
The teachings of the great master knotters of the past have become a precious cultural heritage of traditional handcrafting that remains the foundation of Golran collections, despite technological developments and a shift toward design. From the ancient bazaars to the most modern European
markets, from Mashhad to Milan (where the company moved to in 1968) and across three generations, today Golran’s descendants still run the company with the same skill, reliability and passion.
CARPET RELOADED COLLECTION
With this collection, Golran combines its long-standing experience and know-how with creative flair and experimentation, thus anticipating a trend or rather, channeling it into a new one.
Carpet Reloaded revisits and reinterprets oriental carpets produced throughout the 1900s with new cutting edge techniques. The past, with its materials and traditional weaving techniques, is projected into the present through de-coloration processes and subsequent monochromatic re-dyeing that endows the carpets with a new identity.
The unique and original results of this process are precious, entirely handmade items. Despite the similar workmanship and mood, no two carpets are identical.
