For each carpet it is possible to trace the region, city or the village of origin.
As a student, Richard Ebbers just had a side job at a carpet shop. Carrying Persian carpets, beating and piling them, he slowly fell for their charm. He began to understand why people wanted to pay such large amounts for these fabric artworks. While Richard worked hard and became the deputy director, he gained valuable experience with carpets from all regions. After confirming his carpentry knowledge with a Hobéon SKO certificate, Richard joined the Federation TMV (Federation of Appraisers, Brokers and Auctioneers in Movable Goods). And then, when Richard Ebbers wanted to work with undamaged carpets, he came to Catawiki. As an expert, he loves to see varied lots passing by every day. He can determine, by looking at the pattern and knots, in which region the carpet is made. Together with the condition of the carpet, this is a good price indicator. But the most important thing remains, according to Richard, whether it is a beautiful piece. With all this criteria in mind, he compiles auctions that fans of Persian carpets should definitely not miss.
