-The Esquire 100 - Hossein Rezvani
Persian carpets are entrenched in Iranian culture.
That is something that Hossein Rezvani is not only very aware of, but something he champions. The CEO of his eponymous Persian rug company, for Rezvani his designs are a way to tell the history and culture of his country, weaved in with a way of expressing his personal aesthetics.
The third generation of a family to be involved in the profession, he is dedicated to giving the famous trade a much more contemporary twist. Each single rug designed by Hossein has the desire to bring forth something new that holds an emotionally touching and enduring value.
Unlike much of today’s consumerist world, Rezvani avoids mass production to create pieces that he hopes will be inherited by future generations of families.
