Saber: Master Saber worked with the Amoghli brothers until around 1940, at which point he left to open his own workshop to produce extremely fine rugs of his own. As he was producing on a much smaller scale than the Amoghli brothers his pieces are far rarer today, and thus highly sought after. Saber rugs are still woven today by Master Bazmi, as agreed upon by Saber & his family before his death in 1977.
