Hamadan Shahrbaf Patina Rug carpet from Persia / Iran.
CarpetVista Patina is a series of carefully selected carpets. These carpets have a certain wear that does not reduce the impression of them, and is in fact part of their beautiful natural aging process. Common to these selected carpets is that they are at least 40 years old and have an elegance and harmony in both pattern and colour. We select them in order to preserve the great cultural heritage and to allow them to be discovered by a new generation.
All Patina carpets are washed, then thoroughly examined for any potential damage that might compromise the carpet's continued sustainability. If the pile is unevenly worn or if the surface layer of the pile is damaged this is carefully and gently polished down to give a beautiful smooth surface. The end result is the best of both worlds, a sustainable carpet which clearly perceives the majestic feeling that only an older carpet can reflect. You also get a beautiful carpet that will not only continue to increase in value, but that is moreover a pleasure to behold.
These older oriental carpets are unique works of art that deserve to be preserved and used by several generations to come.

The Hamadan carpet is knotted in 500-600 villages in an area surrounding the city of Hamadan in northwestern Persia. Every village or smaller group of villages, has its own obvious distinctive character. The carpet is generally very colourful and made with good quality wool. To sum up, this carpet is worth its price and are good utility carpets. Shahrbaf is a carpet of higher quality.
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.
Excellent company with beautiful rugs. I have bought several over the years and never been disappointed. But the delivery service was not up to scratch - not entirely Carpet Vista's fault perhaps, but it lost them a star because my query did not elicit a helpful response.
Beautiful rug. Fantastic service
Absolutely delighted with my new rug. From start to finish the service I received from Carpetvista was so professional and efficient. The Rug I received was exactly the same as advertised on the site and the delivery service was fast and efficient.
Great Range, well priced, speedy delivery with very good tracking and a quality product on arrival. Will use them again for sure.
I ordered four different carpets. All of them are very beautiful and good quality. Love them. The colours are bright and the carpets were clean and nice. All I needed to do was to roll them out. Good value for money.
