Carpet ID AXVZZZL58
Knot density approx 250 000 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.

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

Sarouk American carpet from India.

This carpet is hand knotted in a classic, oriental style with inspiration from antique Persian Sarouk carpets. They are called American Sarouk since they were originally intended for the American market. The carpet, which is often dark blue or pink, is made by hand in studios in Varanasi in India. In their manufacture high class and soft highland wool is used which is dyed in a harmonic colour scheme with natural colours in a traditional way. The carpet is antique-treated in order to get their special, somewhat toned-down appearance.
