This rug was knotted in a workshop in the city of Kerman, in south-eastern Persia. A large number of rugs are sold to palaces all over the world. The base colour is often red and the pattern is dominated by a large medallion with a wide border filled with flowers.
Kerman rugs often have a fan of medallions and floral decorations, but the tree-of-life structure is popular as well. Just like Tabriz rugs, rugs from Kerman can come in many designs. The quality of these rugs is high, with knot densities between 250,000 and 600,000 knots per square metre. Kerman rugs may vary in colour, but red, blue and purple are generally used.
Please take the time to study the carpet in detail and enjoy this work of art.
Sherkat Farsh: Is a foundation that was founded in Iran about 70 years ago. The goal of this foundation was to maintain both the old traditions of the Persian carpet culture as well as the quality of carpet production. Nowadays, the foundation organises the quality production of carpets in 500 villages and 100 cities around Iran. Sherkat Farsh carpets have a high knot density, natural coloured, high quality wool and with the beautiful patterns and colour combinations, the tradition lives on in these durable carpets.
