Antique Kerman rugs for sale are celebrated as one the best in the world. These pearls of Persian weaving craft are distinguished by a wide array of designs, exceptional quality and expert color combinations which make them apple of the eye of designers and collectors alike. This enchanting extra large area rug encompasses all the above-mentioned merits and, thanks to the phenomenal skill and artistic sensitivity of its makers, it takes us to lush Shah’s gardens where at every step we may admire rich gifts of nature, enjoy fragrant flowers and listen to soothing songs of proud birds of paradise. Its vast striated sapphire and emerald field is filled with an allover caramel and cream design of flowering vines, graceful birds and staggered cypress trees within an apricot cartouche main border, surrounded by discreet secondary borders carrying gentle flowering climbers.
Slightly differing coloration and various shades of hues within the rug are known as ‘Abrash’ and are caused by hand-spinning of wool and using natural dyes but it may also be an intentional creative effect or a personal expression of a weaver. It is a marker of quality which confirms that the rug dealer was entirely hand-made and has no artificial components. This soft antique Persian carpet was indeed thoroughly crafted by hand of the first-rate wool in old and refined weaving techniques. Thanks to its timeless elegance it has a chance to embellish any contemporary interior and bring in some of its oriental spark.
