The colors in the carpet will be perceived differently depending on the angle you view it from.
Mashad 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.
This carpet is knotted in Mashad the capital in the province of Khorasan, an area in norteastern Persia. The patterns are often medallions in dark blue-red and blue nuances and the wool in the carpet is very soft. The Mashad carpets often resemble some Keshan carpets.
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.
High quality and excellent service
The rug we ordered is of high quality and exactly as described on the website. The ordering process was very easy and transparent and the rug was delivered very promptly. Altogether, the service we have received from CarpetVista has been excellent.
Everything really fine
High quality and speedy delivery
Really beautiful, high quality carpet, and can't believe, how quickly it got delivered. Makes me want to order more, although I definitely don't need any more.. There is some sort of slightly darker band going along one end of the rug, as if there has been a sello-tape stuck there, but you can't see it too well and I think it will blend in over time.
I have bought many rugs from Carpet Vista and I am always happy with my purchase. Excellent quality, price and delivery. I have not purchased a rug from any other company in years. Looking forward to my next purchase *****
A lot of room for improvement!
I give a negative point for the following reasons: 1- very poor quality packaging material, which was open on two corners and worn off at the bottom making the carpet back visible (I can send the photos, if needed). 2- folding the carpet on the wrong side 3- not sending a printed Certificate of Authenticity 4- posting photoshopped photo’s of the carpet giving it a vintage/antique look, which is different than the reality of the carpet. 5- one important character of a Persian carpet which plays a key role on its value is its axial symmetry along the long and short axes. The length of this carpet is 340,5cm on the one side and 334cm on the other side meaning that the carpet is not symmetrical! To avoid misleading the customer, these figures have to be reported in the descriptions of the carpet, honestly. 6- There were signs of repair at some points, but the carpet still rendered signs of wear at some other points which require immediate attention. These were not reported in the description, either. luckily, I managed to pack this beautiful peace of art and return it.
The ordered carpet is perfect. The specification in page is written well and the original is the same ( or better) as written.
Som veľmi spokojná s ponukou množstva tovaru, selekciou farieb, typu, rozmerov a ceny koberca, ako aj typom a rýchlosťou doručenia
