Specifications

Carpet ID ABCZK431
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, Aqche

I am very satisfied with the good service and the beautiful carpet. The color is bright, just like the picture on the homepage. The delivery was ultra fast, well packaged and the carrier was very friendly. I am very satisfied with the whole service! Price-performance ratio couldn't be better! Many many thanks!

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.

If you see online that this item is sold that is because we have purchased it! Delivered yesterday, the most beautiful Persian/Iranian Gabbeh Rustic rug that fits like a glove in the dining end of our living room; the wonderful colours blend perfectly with our other soft furnishings in the room. So delighted with the effect of this rug, the same evening, I went online and purchased another Gabbeh Rustic rug for the other end of the living room; it is different in naive patterns to the first rug, whilst as complementary to our soft furnishings. Absolutely delighted with our purchase. Thank you CarpetVista. Jill Fenton

I don’t usually write reviews, in fact this is my first, but so very pleased with my rugs delivered here to Spain. I’m always a bit apprehensive ordering online from a photo but I needn’t have worried the quality and colours are brilliant and with a very quick delivery service. I’m sure I will be ordering more in the future.
