Knot density approx 250 000 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.

Thickness ≈ 8 mm
Age Old 20-50 years
Origin Persia / Iran
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 Cotton
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 Kashan, Keszan
Size 205x296

This carpet is hand knotted/woven; therefore, difference in shape, thickness, pattern and sizes can occur. This applies particularly to nomadic and village carpets.

Keshan Patina 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.

Should be five stars but.....

I am happy about the quality, it looks and feels a touch of luxury in my modern and fairly minimalist home. The colour was described as white but is really beige. It still works with my white walls and bamboo wood floor, but I would have preferred it in a grey shade of white rather than a brownish shade of white. Drop a half point as I know how difficult colour description can be. The carpet was well protected with plastic and strong bands, but had been folded for a long time and was tightly packed. I am struggling to persuade it to lie flat, I had it upside down for a couple of days, and also trying steam but the folded ridges are very obvious still. A Pity it was not rolled rather than folded. Another half point down, so four stars rather than the five which the carpet itself probably deserves.
