Welcome to Midiya, a company from the ancient land of the Silk Road, from where we bring to you hand made quality carpets from along the Silk Way.
We started our company by sourcing hand made goods from along the ancient Silk Way route, so as to bring to you by efficient modern means of transport.
The goods we have selected to present to you are all quality products, made in the traditional way as handed down from generation to generation by the artesans from the lands where these carpets have been made for centuries.
The carpets we offer to you have been sourced from different communities, where the artisans live, and have lived through the generations, and using traditional methods and techniques which are still used today. In particular the wollen carpets are sourced from small artisan workshops in Azerbaijan in the area of Sheki.
Other Silk carpets are sourced from modern day Iran, which many years ago was part of Azerbaijan, and the whole area was known as the lands of Media, as described in the Bible, from which we derived the name of the company.
What We Offer That is Different
Modern day materials often have synthetic content and are mass produced to gain economies of scale and manufacture, and offer many benefits for certain purposes.
At Midiya, we believe there is a place for both the benefits of modern day fabrics, as well as a place for the traditional hand crafted products which we offer to you. We look on them in the same was as pieces of art because they bring the character of the artisan and his or her craftsmanship as well as the look and feel and colours and textures of natural materials into your home.
We believe there is a place for such works of art on the walls and surfaces of the discerning modern home.
The Aim of Midiya
Our aim is to select the best hand crafted products and to offer these to you as art works, which you can keep to enjoy and gift them through your family and friends as the years go by.
If you have a particular theme or event in mind, we can even offer to produce a hand crafted design to suit your particular requirements. You can communicate this to us through a hand produced sketch design, or a photograph. Obviously to produce a bespoke themed design takes a number of weeks depending upon the size of the piece and the complexity of the work involved.
If you have any questions, or need help in your selection, or advice which product to choose, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us and we will be more than happy to help you out.
