Omid moves magic car­pet

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

AF­TER 10 years at the Meri­dien Marina, Mas­ter’s Per­sian Car­pet Gallery will be con­duct­ing an auc­tion of some of its finest wool and silk car­pets in prepa­ra­tion for its move to Macrossan Street in the com­ing weeks.

Owner Omid Mas­ter needs to sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce his floor stock be­fore mov­ing and will hold a fi­nal auc­tion on Jan­uary 29.

“Each of the hand-wo­ven de­signs are unique be­cause the de­sign­ers graph­i­cally dot paint the plan be­fore be­gin­ning to weave the car­pet and can take up to two years to com­plete,” Omid said.

Omid per­son­ally trav­els to the coun­tries where the car­pets are made and sources each mas­ter­piece from the orig­i­nal weavers.

Al­though the main wing of the marina re­mains open, Omid said plans to de­mol­ish the cen­tre means he will look to con­tinue his long-term ven­ture in Macrossan St.

Doors open for in­spec­tion of the car­pets at 10am on Satur­day with the auc­tion start­ing at 2pm.
