Specifications

Carpet ID AXVZZZF672
Knot density approx 160 000 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.

This carpet is knotted by Armenians in the village of Lilihan, in the Arak district in western Iran. The carpet is generally thick and colourful, dominated by pink. The pattern often consists of curvilinear floral motifs, but also geometric ones occur. The wool is of good quality which makes the carpet beautiful and worth its price. The Lilihan carpet forms part of the group of Hamadan carpets.
