Specifications

Carpet ID AXVZX4040
Knot density approx 160 000 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.

Shiraz carpet from Persia / Iran.

This carpet is knotted in the province of Fars in southwest of Iran, with the city of Shiraz as the capital province. The carpet was originally knotted by nomads that lived in the area, but nowadays most of them are resident in smaller villages in the province. The pattern in the carpet is typical for nomads with motifs of simple geometric figures and often with one or more rhombs in the center. The bottom colour is often red and the motifs in different blue nuances. There are also stilized flowers and bird motifs. The carpets are considered to be rustic and of good quality.
