Size 307 x 208 cm, 10'1 x 6'10
Hand-made in Iran from wool. This rug contains approximately 1020000 knots, and would have taken 170 days to weave and finish.
Isphahan is one of the most famous weaving cities of Iran producing some of the finest rugs available today and are experts in using both wool and silk. Most pieces are post WW2 as this is when the city came into its own as a weaving centre. Our Isphahan rugs are also designated Nejafabad woven in the same region mostly in wool producing larger rugs in classic Isphahan patterns.
Most rugs from Iran are old or antique coming from the bazaars where we select the best condition pieces and fully refurbish them. These pieces can be between 25 and 100 years old with little or no sign of wear. To purchase a brand new rug is very expensive and the colours too brash for our taste. The advantage is that they have mellowed into colours most suitable for the North American and European markets and are very inexpensive.
We highly recommend purchasing this rug with our top quality German underlay as it vastly improves the life of your carpet and guards against slipping accidents.
It has a 10 year non-stick, non-crumble guarantee. To learn more click here.
