Questions regarding this carpet?

Iran/Persia, Mashhad

Mashhad is a city of millions in eastern Iran. It is one of the holiest cities in Islam with a large number of pilgrims visiting the tomb of the eighth Imam each year. Hand-knotted Persian rugs from Mashhad are usually larger than average. They have a medallion in the centre and are held in dark shades.

Highest-grade Wool

Cork wool is sheep's wool from the neck area of the sheep. Wool is a natural material that brings important positive properties to everyday life. It is extremely hard-wearing and easily withstands daily stress. With proper care, it can also last for many decades without showing signs of aging. Cork wool is particularly soft and shiny because it has a higher natural fat content. Therefore, it is usually only used in high-quality rugs.

Knotted by hand

Traditionally hand-knotted rugs still form the highest quality standard among all types of rugs. Depending on the type of knot, the rugs are extremely robust and can last for generations. The finer and tighter a rug is knotted, the more detailed ornaments and patterns can be depicted on the pile. At the same time, a very fine oriental rug requires a much higher manual effort as well as a higher level of experience and skill of the knotter. Thus the knot density also serves as a decisive value factor of hand-knotted rugs. The quality is not directly related to the knot density. A rather coarse rug may well have been made in excellent quality.
