Victor Lidchi - There is a wonderful mystique about Persian carpets. Through the centuries, in the folklore of the East and the West, they have intrigued nobleman and commoner alike. They have delighted home lovers, designers, decorators, investors and collectors. Today, internationally, that allure continues to grow, and in South Africa there is probably no better known doyen of the decorative art form than Victor Lidchi. Lidchi's favourite topic is, with no surprise, hand-made Persian and other oriental carpets. These are lovely, timeless objects of beauty that transcend passing fashion. Lidchi has traveled extensively, scouring the world's eastern carpet markets for the best selection. Every trip produces some exciting find and an advantage for Lidchi is that he loves his work. Henri Lidchi, Victor's father, was an international dealer in art and Persian carpets based in Paris. In 1935, during his travels he met Sir Ernest Oppenheimer who persuaded him to exhibit at the 1936 Empire Exhibition in Johannesburg. He did so with great success, fell in love with the country, and settled in to expand the business with his family. In 1960, Maurice Lidchi, Henri's eldest son left South Africa in later years to redevelop the London and Paris branches, and because buying had become such an important aspect of the business, it was felt that a full-time member of the family on the buying market was required. The younger son, Victor Lidchi, was left to expand the business in South Africa. Victor took on this family tradition in the 1960's, determined to provide quality affordable Persian and oriental carpets.
