Mohammad Jamshidi(Jamshidpor)

He started working in a rug factory since he was ten years old. But after enduring many hardships during his apprenticeship, he decided to start producing rugs independently. In this way, at the age of twelve, he built his first rug store and joined the Jirga of rug manufacturers. He could never accept imitation and copying, so he did not remain faithful to the classic style of Iranian rugs and very boldly created his own style with new designs. Jamshidi was also innovative in color and invented a new dyeing in his own style to achieve a color that is out of the ordinary and does not follow the colors available in the rug market. For this purpose and in the way of producing natural colors, he started a special initiative.

He combined the colors in silk thread and produced 600 new plant colors in this way. With this work, he became the founder of a style in the production of silk thread, which later became known as Sport. This was not the end of the work and he dyed the silk coils with a special technique to have a range of colors. This style also got the name Abaresh later. In this way, he became the creator of a style that gained world fame under his own name. Supervision of the production process in all stages is the responsibility of himself only when you see the satisfaction on his face when he goes directly to the rug weaving workshops and sees and examines the stages of weaving a rug.

Seyyed Ali Masoumi

From the age of 13, he studied and was an apprentice in the market of Qom. In that period, selling rugs was considered one of the good and lucrative jobs, and this had strengthened his motivation to enter the rug selling profession. In this way, at the age of 18 and after finishing high school, he started buying and selling independently. As a result, he got acquainted with the technical issues of rug weaving and gained a good understanding of the texture and quality of rugs. It was at that time that he conceived the idea of ​​a high-quality rug texture different from what was in the market with a new design and plan.

The style of his rugs is known as "Golriz Masoumi". A style that was from his own mental emanations and without the use of a special master. For Masoumi, rug weaving is not only a profession, but she loves it and says that seeing the beauty of the rugs woven by her weavers, she gets rid of all the tiredness of the work. At all times, he has been doing work related to designing, producing and selling rugs, or thinking about developing and introducing a new design in rugs. Masoumi says about her hand-woven rugs: "I have prepared the designs, plans and colors of all the rugs that are woven in our production with great care and obsession. I have followed the high stability.

Mohammad Reza Rashtizadeh (Tajer Rashti)

His father, Master Ali Rashtizadeh, was one of the founders and rug weavers of Qom hand-woven rugs. At the age of 13, he was sent to France to continue his studies. But after living in Paris for 33 years, he returned to Iran at his father's request to start a new chapter of his life with his parents. Despite his great interest in architectural art, when he started designing rugs for the first time, it was as if he had found a new language for artistic expression. As a result, he joined the Jirga of rug manufacturers.

In this way, he benefited a lot from the guidance of his father, who considers him a master of design and understanding of color harmony. Mohammad Reza Rashtizadeh, I have adopted my own special style as a work of art in design and color, I continue my father's style as a part of my productions. Rashtizadeh believes that a rug is not a manufactured product but a work of art: we can see the story of our lives and the weavers and all those who contributed to the creation of a rug in it.

With this thought, he came to the conclusion that at this point in time, hand-woven rug as a work of art needs a new introduction and branding, but to achieve this goal, a collective and group will is not possible alone. As a result, in 2013, he shared the idea of ​​establishing the Timcheh Group with a group of Qom hand-woven rug elders and put it into practice. He believes that in the rug production process, precision in the technique and technical specifications is necessary and necessary, but there should be a limit to it so that the identity of the hand-woven rug is not lost and it does not take the rug out of the artistic form. He who believes that the best pleasure in life is to create a work of art.

In order to show the real status of our country's artists to the world and to keep his father's memory and character alive, he founded the Golden Knot Conference of Master Rashtizadeh.

Soheil Bigdeli

Most producers and weavers of hand-woven rugs in Iran inherited this profession from their families and continued it. But Soheil Bigdeli, contrary to this tradition, grew up in a family that was not familiar with the production of handwoven rugs. However, his artistic taste and interest in combining colors and patterns in Iranian rugs made him enter the field of rug weaving art and with great talent and taste in using unusual colors for original designs, in less than ten years to become one of the familiar names in the art and craft of exquisite Qom rugs.

Bigdlei started his career by producing carpets and small rugs. He has always been fascinated by the style and school of Isfahan.

At the same time, it is believed that the rug should be found for the audience, even if it does not match the producer's personal taste.

The basis of his design is the taste and opinion of customers, designers and decorators. He emphasizes that Iranian rugs are rooted in wool.

Masoud Mohammadi(Mohammad Beigi)

He believes that Iran's classic rug has become far from the taste of the new generation audience and has stagnated. But with a little effort and innovation, it can once again stand on top of the world's handwoven rugs. Masoud Mohammad Beigi founded a company a few years ago with the aim of organizing the production and sale of hand-woven silk rugs with an organized attitude and with the formation of an expert and young staff. But today, he has taken an independent path and used his personal experiences to create new works in the exquisite Iranian rug.

One of the main production policies of Mohammad Beigi rugs is direct involvement in all stages of production, from the purchase of raw silk to the supervision of the final stages of rug finishing. In this way, the desired quality of raw materials is one of the main policies of Mohammad Beigi rug production. The use of different colors and keeping calm at the peak of busy work are among the distinctive features of his rugs. In this field, the design and role of the work is not limited to one color and has its own technique in this regard. In rug design, Mohammad Beigi has distanced himself from the abstract world of traditional patterns and from the designs and patterns found in nature; Like the clouds in the sky, the rotation of the seasons, the change of sunlight, the change of nature's color, the wind, rain and snow, and even the recorded movement of the galaxies, it has used and created a new design.

He believes that copying the works of the predecessors is futile and in vain, and it is much more difficult than producing a new work of art. In this way, his rugs have deeply moved away from the traditional texture of Iranian carpets and are closer to the independent form of the work of art. Masoud Mohammad Beigi believes that the benefits of the resurgence in the rug art-industry are aimed at all factors of rug production, including the weavers who are currently among the vulnerable sections of the society. He says: Every new design will be like breathing a new spirit into the hand-woven rug industry, and if as a result of this prosperity, we witness an increase in the level of welfare in a part of the weaving community, and if we spend a lifetime in this direction, maybe it will not be in vain.
