Specifications

Carpet ID ABCZO516
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 94x145
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.

Excellent carpets, perfect quality, perfect service. We have ordered several carpets on three different orders. Unfortunately two carpets of the second order just didn't quite fit in to our interior, so we sent them back. The returning process and reimbursement was smooth, so we placed another order. The last carpet that arrived very quickly is just wonderful! Colors are just as shown on the website. Highly recommend! Value for money!

Best quality rugs on the market!

I have purchased three rugs from this company. They are absolutely gorgeous and the best quality for the price on the market. I have spent hours and hours online looking for rugs and I always come back to these guys. I wanted natural fibres and contemporary design and it can be tricky trying to pick a rug online and get the colours right but I have been so thrilled when they have arrived, they are perfect and I wouldn’t look anywhere else.

Great carpets, true to photos, fast delivery

Your website is easy to navigate, simple filters allow easy focus on size, price, style. Delivery was fast, in fact, a day earlier than promised upon purchase. The carpets were well packaged and arrived without and damage. The carpets themselves - super! Firstly, they really do look like the pictures on the web site - including carpet, backing. The depicted colors are true. Second, the carpets themselves are of a high quality. Finally, they all came with certificates of authenticity. I am more than satisfied - my experience with CarpetVista far exceeded my internet shopping expectations!
