Carpet ID ABCZF966
Knot density approx 90 000 knots per m²

You can easily calculate the knot density yourself by counting the number of knots 1 cm down and 1 cm across, and then multiplying these numbers together. Then multiply the total by 10,000 to give the number of knots per m².

Some carpet sellers exaggerate the knot density, so to be sure that you are comparing like for like when it comes to price, it is worth checking the knot density yourself. Most of CarpetVista’s carpets have a photograph of the reverse with a ruler, making it easy to examine the knot quality and count the exact knot density before choosing your carpet.

Pile Wool
Wool is a natural textile fibre and one of the most sought after materials for rug making. Wool rugs are highly durable and perfectly capable of resisting wear and tear of every day use. Wool has a naturally dirt-repelling effect and is easy to keep clean. It is also flame resistant and characteristically retains it’s shape so that the pile of the rug always rises.
Warp Wool
Manufacturing Knotted by hand
Elaborate weaving technique with specialized artisans tying knots to form rows of pile either by cutting each individual knot or an entire row of knots. Hand-knotting takes time and also allows for intricate patterns.
Also known as Afgan, Afghán, Afgán
Size 150x195
This carpet is hand knotted/woven; therefore, difference in shape, thickness, pattern and sizes can occur. This applies particularly to nomadic and village carpets.

Afghan Khal Mohammadi carpet from Afghanistan.

Khal Mohammadi are handknotted by Turkmenians in northern Afghanistan and in some cases they can also be handknotted in Pakistan by the Turkomans who have crossed over the borders. Traditionally they have an elephant foot pattern and the Afghan carpet is famous for their beautiful red nuance. The carpet is very durable, with the best quality from Afghanistan. A beautiful carpet well worth its price.

Not disappointed

I bought my carpet at CarpetVista because of all the good reviews on Trustpilot and I was not disappointed. It was delivered within 5 days (to Switzerland), it looks good and I think it's fair quality for my money.
