Carpet ID CAGA765
Knot density approx 90 000 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.
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 Nahavan, Nahavand
Size 152x236
This carpet is hand knotted/woven; therefore, difference in shape, thickness, pattern and sizes can occur. This applies particularly to nomadic and village carpets.

Nahavand Old carpet from Persia / Iran.

The city of Nahavand, in the Hamadan province of western Iran, is known for producing a unique blend of colours and soft and shiny wool. The rugs mostly depicts nomadic, floral and geometric patterns with a central medallion. The colours are often deep red or dark blue, but other vibrant colours are also used. Nahavand rugs are usually only produced in smaller sizes, normally around 230x160 cm. The rugs are knotted on simple horizontal looms on the ground, making it difficult to produce bigger rugs. One of the features with the Persian rugs and which also makes them so unique, is that every town, village and area has their own way and tradition of making rugs. Rugs are not produced or sold on a demand basis, but on what the weaver likes. Our collection of Nahavand Old is a rare chance of buying some truly unique rugs in the best quality. All of our Nahavand Old rugs are at least 30 years old, with a thick and shiny pile making these old rugs extraordinary beautiful.

Absolutely beautiful. I was so skeptical that it would arrive in Greece in the allotted time we had, but was so happy when it arrived the day before we were leaving the country.(It actually took a bit longer than the 4 to 6 business days ). Also paying for the items on the website was a bit confusing. All in All, I'm so happy I made this purchase and that It showed up. I choose the FedEx option and the delivery was so professionally done. The delivery person even came up the apartment, instead of leaving it in the lobby downstairs. Thank you, thank you!! I will probably choose to order from your company again.

Excellenet service

This was our second order from Carpet Vista and they didn't disappoint. Customer service was excellent and we kept informed with tracking information every step of the way. Unfortunately we had to return the rug as it was too small for our room. The return procedure was straight forward. We have since ordered the next size up. Very happy with the service from Carpet Vista and would definitely recommend.
