Specifications

Rug ID TBZAA294
Knot density approx 810 000 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.

Origin Persia / Iran
Pile Silk
Silk is one of the strongest natural fibers available. Silk can be used to accentuate details in woolen rugs and in more exclusive rugs, silk can make up the entire pile and sometimes even the warp. Refined rugs with rich details can only be made using silk as other fibers are too thick for the purpose. Silk has a smooth, soft and lustrous texture with a natural beauty and sheen.
Warp Silk
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 Ghom, Kom, Ghome, Qom, Khum
Size Ø 203
This carpet is hand knotted/woven; therefore, difference in shape, thickness, pattern and sizes can occur. This applies particularly to nomadic and village carpets.

Qum silk carpet from Persia / Iran.

These carpets are knotted in the holy town of Qum in central Persia. The material used is silk which makes them thin and tight. The carpets are extremly well-made and in some cases very detailed. This kind of carpet shows a fine tradition of knotting silk carpets and is one of the best and newly manufactured carpets.

V pleased with round green hallway rug

I requested to change my order (having seen a rug that would match better) & RigVista responded very promptly, in time to switch before the rug was sent out. The rug was delivered when they said it would be, & the colours & size are perfect. I discovered that RugVista have a very large collection, from which I was able to find exactly what I was looking for: a circular rug, diameter 150cm, traditional design, with a muted olive green as the predominant colour. There were even 2 fitting those criteria: ‘Sarina’ & ‘Nahal’, so I was able to choose the pattern I preferred.

Excellent product. Smooth and fast delivery.

Deborah Mills

wonderful product and service

The rug we received matched what the picture looked like on the website perfectly, it’s a beautiful rug with a very soft low pile. Being viscose it kept the cost down, should last well and feels much nicer than the price tag might suggest. Delivery from Sweden was very fast and we were kept informed thoughout.

Ken

Good quality and swift delivery. I thought the choice was excellent, there were some interesting designer options which you don't find that easily. The rugs are good value for money.
