Description

A lovely slightly worn and distressed antique Kirman carpet with soft colours, pinks, pale blues, on an ivory background. Classical design and gorgeous muted colours to furnish with or select fabrics to work with it.  A great antique carpet to compliment an interior, professionally washed by ourselves and ready to be used on the floor. Kirman has long been a town dedicated to carpet weaving in the south east of Persia.

. . .

Kirman carpets are always high quality, woven on a cotton foundation, designs consist of central medallions with floral motifs.  From the 17th century Kerman or Kirman has been a city notorious for fine eleagnt weaving and the famous vase carpets of the Safavid period (1501-1722) are regarded as the most valuable and exquisite in weaving history. Early examples from the 17th century have set records for sales at auctions.
