More about the provenance Sherkate Farsh | Iran

"Sherkat" is the shorter term for "Sherkate Sahamie Farshe Iran", which means "Stock Corporation of Persian Carpets". This corporation is half state owned and has been founded in order to secure a constant rug production of higher quality. Sherkate Farsh maintains numerous manufactories in Iran and primarily controls the quality of the wool, the thoroughness of production (e.g. avoiding crooked rugs) and the purity of the designs, i.e. keeping certain traditions of design up whereby Nomadic designs are almost not used at all. Often it is easily recognizable whether a certain rug is a Sherkat production or not. But it is much more difficult to determine where in Iran a Sherkat rug has been made since the manufactory is not bound to the traditions of the region. "Sherkat" is a guarantee for quality and beauty, a reliable pillar in the multifaceted world of rugs.

This Oriental carpet has a so called "garden design" or as in Persian "Kheshti". The design of Oriental "garden rugs" represents sophisticated garden layouts from a bird's eye view. The oldest garden rugs date back to the 16th century. The legendary rug "Spring of Khosrow" of Khosrow the Sassanide king served as a template. The rugs are divided into fields which are separated by water ditches. The ditches in which often fish and ducks are swimming are flanked by bushes and flowers. Altogether garden rugs are an expression of the special Oriental love of floral beauty which peaked in fantastically laid out gardens.
