Specifications

Rug ID ABCZM93
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.

Thickness ≈ 14 mm

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 Cotton
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 Kerman-Afshar, Sirjan
Size 187x264
This carpet is hand knotted/woven; therefore, difference in shape, thickness, pattern and sizes can occur. This applies particularly to nomadic and village carpets.

Afshar carpet from Persia / Iran.

This carpet is handknotted by villagers, who were former nomads in the south of Persia. The carpet often has a geometrical pattern with red and blue colours. The Afshar carpet is thought to be the best examples of nomadic art among carpets, with their primitive and majestic beauty.

Rug Vista has a comprehensive and easy to navigate website. The rugs arrived a little later than specified but were just as described and excellent quality. My only reservation was the payment options. I couldn't choose PayPal and went instead for Klarna which I had never previously heard of. I'm sure it will be fine but I didn't understand how it worked so was slightly suspicious of using it. But rugs are great and good value.

The package was left where I indicated. I am delighted with the rug which I have in the kitchen. It is soft to walk on and adds colour and pattern to an otherwise plain kitchen.
