(please read the conditions descriptions + Please note the rug you are purchasing is one pictured however as cameras struggle to capture the items true colour with 100% accuracy you cannot rely on the colour as well as the difference in colour projection between screens). Hand woven Persian Shiraz Kilim. 200x290cm (6’7″x9’6″). Multi coloured with a geometric design. Persian Kilims are generally high quality rugs, well crafted hand woven woolen pile on a woolen loom. Known as a Persian Kilim, a durable, long lasting favourite among investors and collectors. These rugs are not as available as they once were due to it being a dying trade resulting from the increase in wages, a drop in demand, an increase in the price of wool and a reduction in the number of master weavers with the required skill. Although traditionally designed and crafted this rug was made in 1985 but using the same dyes, wool and techniques as those made 100 years ago. As you can see from the pictures this rug has not even slightly diminished in quality and will not for many many years. It is not uncommon for these to last over 50 years depending on how it is used. The rug was made using vegetable dye which retains colour better than any chemical dye on the market, coupled with the high quality of the wool used and it being woven onto a woolen warp (the skeleton of the rug) making this a great example of a Persian Kilim. This is a traditional kilim and it is unlikely to find such style of a Persian kilim that has been made so recently on the market today. Every single piece of hand made rug is a one off, even pairs are not ever 100% identical. Please allow for a slight difference with colouration between pictures and the actual item. This is because cameras capture light in different ways to the human eye, with slight differences in lighting such as whether sunlight, office lighting or professional photoshoot lighting which makes a difference between what is seen from one screen to another and what is seen in your own room with your own lighting and so on. We normally use a combination of sunlight and artificial lighting. Preparation: The way the wool has been prepared differs from country to country and from sheep to sheep, this is also true with the dye. The persian kilims are of the most hard wearing and sought after. Durability: The compactness of the knots means that the rug is very hard to damage, the one thing that causes the greatest damage to rugs is liquid because it affects the knots. If the knots are tight as it is with this rug even liquid will struggle to damage this rug. The evidence of the quality of this rug is indicated by the picture with the ruler showing an inch aligned with a line of weaves. Count the number of weaves within the inch to get the knots per square inch as an indication of the quality of the rug. The more knots per square inch the better the quality of the rug as it would require better quality fabric to make finer knots and that the finer the knots the more time was spent on making the rug. The rug is 5.80 sq metres Each square metre contains 1550 square inches. Each square inch consists of approximately 160 knots. 8990 square inches to this rug, 1,438,400 weaves to make this rug. The average time to weave a knot for someone trained to work off a design plan a pixelated sheet where each dot represents a knot on the rug. Is around 1 second when averaged out for the time spent looking at the design plan, this doesn’t account for the collection, cleaning and preparation of the wool, the dyes. This rug would have taken approximately 200 hours, that’s two people at 8 hours a day for 25 days. DOB: 1985 Origin: Persian Shiraz Weft: Wool Warp: Wool Dye: Vegetable Weight: approx 8kg Knots per Sq Inch: 160+. Persian Rugs are renown worldwide for their superior quality in design and knotting techniques as well as making and using the very best quality wool and dyes giving it that characteristic ability to retain colour and longevity that is very well known worldwide. An advantage unique to Kilims is that they are identical on both sides of the rug, i. One disadvantage of the rug is that due to it’s light weight it will not stay put if walked on, on smooth flooring. It must have something to either hold it down, or an understand to stop it from slipping. It will be more stable. On non-smooth flooring such as carpet or more coarse tiling. The inconsistencies you see in handmade rugs may look as though the rug has been sullied, this is not always the case. The way to know if a pile is dirty or if it’s the colour of the wool is to see the strand to the base; – the wool has a different dye if the colour of the strand is uniform to the base. It is dirt or some other marking if the discolouration is only on the surface. Most rugs purporting to be Persian have in fact been made somewhere else, generally China. The way it is allowed for it to be advertised as Persian is due to the usage of Persian designs. If you ask the suppliers of these rugs where the rugs have been made they’ll usually tell the truth. This is also the case with rugs such as Zieglers the best of which comes from Afghanistan 50/50 knots using ghazni wool and a special dye that gives it the special flair only the Ziegler is renown for. But because the name of the design is’Zeigler’ it could be made in Pakistan, India, or China and named an Afghan Ziegler because that is where the best of the Zieglers are made. The best way to clean these rugs is to hang them on a washing line and to beat them with a blunt stick (like a bat). The general rule is: 1. If both items have the same width and together do not exceed 20kg it may be combined. The heaviest rugs are shaggy, then hand tufted and then hand woven and kilims/dhurries are the lightest of them all. With kilims and dhurries I can combine several of those at the same time, the most I’ve ever sent in one go is 8 pieces. Collection: You are welcome to collect from the address below at.
