Saad Mirza's Profile

About

My name is Saad Mirza. I grew up in London, Graduated Trinity College, Cambridge in Math and Physics. But I am a collector of rare rugs and ancient rare coins. My father was a World renowned Numismatician of Roman, Indo-Greek, Kushan, Bactirian, Sasanian, Islamic and Mughal coins who often took me to Sotheby's and Christie's Auctions just to make me fall in love with antiques, but I don't think he meant for it to happen. Even though I run a full time Framing Crew in Greater Kansas City Area. I like to keep in touch with collecting. I can weave Oriental Rugs including Kazak and Turkomen. But I am a collector of rare Antique Rugs, Hereke with Gold Wire, Kashan, Isfahan Qum, and Tabriz are my favorites. I keep the rare or the ones that show history (like once belonged to a lord or a lady) and sell others at Auctions.
, Tapestry work is something I enjoy as well since it is much less complex than rug weaving and takes less material…

, Tapestry work is something I enjoy as well since it is much less complex than rug weaving and takes less material. Actually I learned it from a girl in Tharparker, Pakistan, but I ended up hiring her because of my busy schedule. All my work is of a high quality and I guarantee every square nanometer of it.
I claim to be a descendent of Zahiruddin Muhammad Mirza "Babur", the first Mughal Emperor of India from both sides of my family. As the first Europeans who came to India wrote in their letters back saying "Their bravery lies on their floors". They were referring to a pre Shah Abbas Palace Size Persian rugs that were made of silk and had curvilinear Hunting and Picoral fields. I hope I come across one in my lifetime, if I do I won't sell it.
