More about the provenance Kerman | Iran

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 most famous of the ca. 30 villages around Kerman in which rugs are made is called Ravar. The Kerman rug is often described as the "King of the carpets - the carpet of Kings". The Persian knot is used making them as opposed to the more spread Turkish knot which is more often used with Persian rugs.

This Oriental rug has been treated with an "Antique Finish" wash. This wash includes not only the actual cleaning of the carpet but also its processing (ennobling) which represents an increase in the carpet's value. Carpet lovers often appreciate the "patina", the antique look which is reached by ageing, usage, and light exposure. Therefore this wash has been developed which actually accelerates this procedure and turns the colors of a rug, which often still feel and look "raw" after the carpet production, into softer and older looking colors. By this special technique a soft and silky feel is added to the Oriental carpet as well. This washing technique requires experience and skill since otherwise carpets could easily be damaged by it. In this case the washing was implemented perfectly.
