Minasian Rug Company is honored to have been selected to introduce an important collection of unique rugs and carpets acquired over the last 40 years by Mr. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

These pieces are magnificent examples of the richness and diversity of 19th century tribal and village weavings and were selected by Mr. Abdul-Jabbar during his frequent travels throughout the world.

Each piece speaks not only of the significance of the weaver but also of Mr. Abdul-Jabbar’s own exquisite personal taste. Each piece has been chosen for its beauty and importance in maintaining the rich culture and tradition of a nearly lost art.
