It offers a place for modern, decorative carpets, as well as unique traditional Persian art pieces.
Ashtari stands for high quality and ethically correct carpets. All products in our assortment are personally selected by our team based on important criteria such as originality, quality and craftsmanship.
The love for beauty, aesthetics and handicraft is our ideology and inspiration every day.
It all began in 1969. Ata Ashtari completed his education in decorative arts and decided to choose Antwerp as his permanent stay.
He deepened his knowledge in the designs and symbolic of Persian carpets. Ata decorated many houses with his exclusive carpets.
He married and got four children, three daughters and one son, Reza, who is leading his company now.
We have weekly contact with local weaving ateliers in countries such as Nepal, and it is our duty and responsibility to cooperate only with weaving ateliers who can guarantee us an ethically correct working environment.
Ashtari is fully committed to a fair and reliable trade with the weaving atelier in their land of origin.
For over 30 years, we cooperate with weaving ateliers who meet our ethical values and standards, and who are part of human rights organizations against child labor, looking over the well-being of their people.
