Carpet ID ABCZL481
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.

Shabargan carpet from Afghanistan.

The Shabargan rugs are a relatively new and modern production. They are hand knotted by Uzbeks in the northern part of Afghanistan. The Uzbeks settled here in the late 16th. Century and are famous for their high quality textiles. The Shabargan rugs are very durable and made using high quality wool. The unique combination of master dyers and weavers from Afghanistan creates these artefacts with strong personality. The origin of the design and manufacturing has its roots in Persia. Few warm colors contrast with each other giving brightness to the precious wool. Large and unusual floral designs are developed together with simple characters of people and animals, to give harmony in the carpets.
