Rashad Patina signed: Shibani
The colors in the carpet will be perceived differently depending on the angle you view it from.
Rashad Patina signed: Shibani 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.
A rug was purchased nearly one year ago which recently showed small amounts of binding becoming loose. I contacted CarpetVista with photographs to support the problem and they were quick to respond with a number of options. I decided on a replacement rug and as soon as the old one was sent back the new one was delivered. Problems can arise but it's how they are resolved which shows how good the retailer is - CarpetVista have been fantastic and their Customer care Team outstanding - Well Done A Thompson
