This exhibit celebrates the 70th anniversary of Cadrys Rugs and recognises the Cadry family’s decades of generosity as Powerhouse donors. The display features objects on loan from the Cadry family, including a world-first display of a rare Royal Persian Dorokhsh carpet.

Sydney’s first Persian-owned carpet business was founded in 1952 by recent immigrant Jacques Cadry (1910–2003), who had been born into a Jewish family in the trade. For 70-years, Cadrys Rugs has been at the forefront of introducing Australian designers and artists, including Florence Broadhurst, to the unique craftsmanship of Persian rugs.

Actively welcomes people with access needs.
