Specifications

Carpet ID XEA2073
Knot density approx 360 000 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 Ghom, Kom, Ghome, Qom, Khum
Size 87x135

This carpet is hand knotted/woven; therefore, difference in shape, thickness, pattern and sizes can occur. This applies particularly to nomadic and village carpets.

Description

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.

The foundation "Sherkat Farsh" was founded about 70 years ago. The purpose with the foundation was to uphold the traditions of the Persian carpet culture and to maintain the quality in the country's carpet production.

Our experience with Carpet Vista was excellent. The large 10' X 12' carpet we ordered surpassed our expectations in every way. It was more beautiful than in the photos and the price was unbeatable. We have ordered Oriental rugs from 3 European vendors and this is by far the best source of rugs we have seen with regard to price and the wide selection. Delivery was extremely fast.

Happy!
I´m very glad that a friend recommended Carpetvista - they have a fantastic selection of carpets and the service is great aswell. I had some issues with my first order and they replied to all my e-mails within hours, being very helpful. I had to return my first carpet, but it was so easy and convenient to do. I am in love with my second carpet! And am browsing through the catalogues to buy one more :)
