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. This conference, which is held annually, has had a significant impact in honoring the unassuming artists of Qom's rug weaving art. Rug name: Dahlia Dimensions: 540 * 397 Year of production: 2014
