This is a unique handmade / hand-knotted / modern / contemporary carpet
The pile of this carpet is made of wool with silk parts.
100% New Zealand wool
This carpet has a total of approximately 1,200,000 knots and it took skilled carpet makers about 1,600 hours or 178 working days to hand-knot this carpet.
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.
