The colors in the carpet will be perceived differently depending on the angle you view it from.
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.
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.
