Mr. Mir Mahmoud Hosseini is an internationally renowned master of design and weaving Persian Carpets. The family was entitled 'Alinasab' owing to their sophistication and delicacy in the art of carpeting. He was allowed to carry the title since his excellent skill rivaled with all the family entitled Alinasab. Mir Mahmoud took the carpet from the floor to the walls, therefore the size changed from the size of the floors into his measurements of a tableau. Each of his carpets is a window to an era. He entered the three dimensions of Volume, time, and Motion in carpeting and started to work on a realism-oriented style, which was challenging with the realistic painting style and natural picturesque scenery. He later entered the style of surrealism and his designed carpets were the highest point of sophistication in carpeting. The style of surrealism implies the visual elements of the dimensions of Time, Space, and Rhythm. He started his apprenticeship in carpet weaving at the age of 12 under the supervision of his father, who is one of the masters of the era.
