Fine Persian Nenej - L31503

Product Description

Size 300 x 133 cm, 9'10 x 4'4

Hand made in Iran (Persia) in wool. This rug has around 568000 knots and would have taken 95 days to weave and finish.

Nenej village weaving was discovered by the Arts and Crafts movement in the late 19th century as a source of patterned rugs suitable to the movements aesthetic, prior to them having their own design reproduced.  The weave is good, the pile dense and the price moderate, making them very popular with western buyers. These rugs are often classified as Feraghan from the market town where they are sold in the bazaar.  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.
