Kork Wool

The special wool with which a "Kork" rug has been made is called "Kork" wool. The Persian word "Kork" means "soft down". This expression is used for particularly fine and soft wool for very high quality rugs, especially for expensive rugs made in esteemed manufactures like e.g. in Kashan. It is common to add the word "Kork" to the provenance name as in e.g. "Kashan Kork".
