More about the provenance Kerman | China
Kerman is the capital city of the province of the same name. Kerman rugs have already been mentioned by the secretary of Shah Abbas I. (1587-1629) who spoke of "rugs with gold and silber threads". There are Kerman rugs preserved to this day since the 16th century throughout each century. Since the end of the 19th century until today Kerman with its large and esteemed rug manufactories is considered to be one of the most significant carpet production centers of Iran. Kerman is probably the only larger city of Iran whose population in its majority lives of carpet production.The Kerman rug is often described as the "King of the carpets - the carpet of Kings". This rug is a high quality Chinese reproduction of a Kerman.
This Oriental rug has been treated with a "Noble Finish" wash. This wash includes not only the actual cleaning of the carpet but also its processing (ennobling) which represents an increase in the Oriental carpet's value. By this special technique a soft and silky feel and shine are added to the carpet. This washing technique requires experience and skill since otherwise carpets could easily be damaged by it. In this case the washing was implemented perfectly.
