Product Information

Details

This rug is a unique piece of world art that will enhance your living space. Kerman produces highly distinctive carpets primarily in highly floral medallion or all over designs. During the 16th and 17th century, these rugs were made by village weavers for the royal family, commissioned by the king and this is why they are called the 'Royal Kermans'. The rug is 100 percent wool. The knot count is 200. The pile height is 0.15 inches. Colors include red, ivory, blue, beige, gold, green, navy and grey.

Story Behind the Art:
This particular rug was made in the 1940's by village weavers in Kerman, which is a well known rug weaving province in Iran. The process of rug making includes cleaning, washing and dyeing the wool, and then weaving the rug with vegetable-dyed wool. Due to the handmade nature of our rugs, the size may vary from as advertised by 3-4 inches. Regular vacuuming and annual professional cleaning will keep your rug looking new for years to come. Herat Oriental has been providing beautiful, authentic, handmade rugs to Worldstock for over 10 years. Worldstock has given us the opportunity to create jobs for over 2,000 local village weavers, which helps them to greatly support their families. The majority of the weavers are women, who live in the villages of Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Iran. As we grow with Worldstock, we are able to create more jobs for female weavers who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so. The community also thrives from rug weaving as the local farmers benefit from wool sales, and the local artisans create natural and vegetable dyes for the weavers to use in their designs.

Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.

All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.

Please keep in mind that new wool rugs may initially shed and have a natural capacity to shed for several months after purchase. This is normal due to the nature of construction of most wool rugs and not a defect. Click here to view our Wool Rug Care Guide.
