Specifications

Carpet ID AXVZC419
Knot density approx 490 000 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.

Information about Qum Sherkat Farsh carpet from Persia / Iran.

These carpets are knotted in the holy town of Qum in central Persia. The wool used is known as cork-wool and is sheared from the neck of the lamb. This makes it possible to spin the wool extra thin, thus leading to durable threads which makes the carpet very tight. These carpets are extremly well-made and in some cases very detailed.
