Najib

Najib has been fascinated with the beauty of weaving art since he was very young. It was during his studies at the University of Hamburg when he became more involved in the tradition of weaving art and rugs as cultural artifact. His researches also led him to the rug origin countries. Within the years he developed a special view for vintage pieces. Today Najib is recognized world-wide for his professionalism and knowledge. He contributed items to some of Germany´s and Europes most important collections. Najib´s goal is to convey the spirit and magic of rugs. In a time when rugs are often seen as a flooring material or as an ordinary object of utility, Najib´s effort is to preserve and save rugs as a cultural artifact. His main focus is on rugs as objects of art. Najib´s gallery is located in Maimoorweg 56, 22179 Hamburg, Germany. Beside tribal and village rugs and bags he also offers classical rugs, decorative roomsize carpets, rare collector´s pieces and textiles.
