Specifications

Rug ID ABCZJ488
Knot density approx 90 000 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 Wool
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 Afgan, Afghán, Afgán, Aqche

Really pleased with the rug and service.

We are delighted with the carpet, which seemed to us to be exceptional value for money. Delivery, which was from Sweden, was prompt and satisfactory in every way. We have no hesitation in recommending this company, based upon this first experience.

This rug is really nice. Feels like wool, so soft and cozy. Also really easy to vacuum which is so important with shag rugs.

Trustworthy website with high quality products

I ordered and returned a rug last year and the returning process was so smooth.. Therefore I wanted to give it a go again. This time I picked the right product for my hallway and it looks really good. My order arrived earlier than the scheduled time and the product is exact the same as the website. Hugo Black&Grey 80x250cm I am planning to order another rug for my living room.
