The colors in the carpet will be perceived differently depending on the angle you view it from.
Sarouk Patina carpet from Persia / Iran.
CarpetVista Patina is a series of carefully selected carpets. These carpets have a certain wear that does not reduce the impression of them, and is in fact part of their beautiful natural aging process. Common to these selected carpets is that they are at least 40 years old and have an elegance and harmony in both pattern and colour. We select them in order to preserve the great cultural heritage and to allow them to be discovered by a new generation.
All Patina carpets are washed, then thoroughly examined for any potential damage that might compromise the carpet's continued sustainability. If the pile is unevenly worn or if the surface layer of the pile is damaged this is carefully and gently polished down to give a beautiful smooth surface. The end result is the best of both worlds, a sustainable carpet which clearly perceives the majestic feeling that only an older carpet can reflect. You also get a beautiful carpet that will not only continue to increase in value, but that is moreover a pleasure to behold.
These older oriental carpets are unique works of art that deserve to be preserved and used by several generations to come.
This carpet is knotted in a large area surrounding the village of Sarouk in the western parts of central Persia. The carpet, often red or blue, is manufactured with a number of different patterns, but often have a centrally placed medallion and a distinct defined border. The wool used is of high quality and treated to lustre and the carpet is thick and durable.
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.
Should be five stars but.....
I am happy about the quality, it looks and feels a touch of luxury in my modern and fairly minimalist home. The colour was described as white but is really beige. It still works with my white walls and bamboo wood floor, but I would have preferred it in a grey shade of white rather than a brownish shade of white. Drop a half point as I know how difficult colour description can be. The carpet was well protected with plastic and strong bands, but had been folded for a long time and was tightly packed. I am struggling to persuade it to lie flat, I had it upside down for a couple of days, and also trying steam but the folded ridges are very obvious still. A Pity it was not rolled rather than folded. Another half point down, so four stars rather than the five which the carpet itself probably deserves.
Easy order, large choice Perfect
Great carpet and service
Very quick delivery and lovely product. Very happy.
Beautiful rug, more vivid colours as on the picture. Very pleased with the carpet and with the service.
Precise and efficient handling of the order and shipping were all perfect. Also, your policy on communication is very good for us, the new-commers as your customers. Quality of the runner (Afgan) was exactly as we expected. I want to be your customer for a long time.
Brilliant and efficient service. Customer service excellent. Rug is beautiful and what I expected
Just made my second rug purchase this month, very happy excellent deliver time during this difficult time 5 star Company and products
Superb efficiency in service - absolutely outstanding quality of communication throughout the entire process. Wonderful detail on the website so that you know what you are buying. The actual carpet precisely matches the description. Exquisite quality carpet - in design and workmanship it really is a work of art. It should be on the wall but we have no space. Soon there will be no space on the floor since we have just ordered another carpet from CarpetVista. Pricing policy is fair, reasonable and absolotely appropriate for the quality of the product. CarpetVista could serve as a model of clarity, efficiency, and quality of service for many other online sales companies.
