Place of origin
Kordi (also Kord or Kurdi) is a collective term for rugs from Iran that are hand knotted by Kurds. The Koliai and Khorasan rugs, if you will, are also Kordi rugs. Usually Kurdi rugs come from the Khorasan province. Only rarely do they come from the Turkmen-Afghan region.
Kurds make use of all classical provenances (origin, source) for the rug knotting. However, they do not blindly imitate traditional patterns, but put them into practice in their own way. Especially the colors often deviate strongly from original patterns. As a result, one encounters diverse designs among Kordi rugs, but mostly with a rather dark color scheme. This old Kordi is more than 40 years old and a true collector's item.
The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Kordi. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It blends in fantastically with any surroundings and subtly complements the interior design of a room..
The edge of the rug is decorated with an edging (border). The border forms a glorious contrast to the center.
The repeating elements in the center field of this Kordi rug have no specific center (so-called repeating pattern). The repeating pattern has a calming but not boring effect. Rugs with repeating patterns are also called patterned.
The background of this Kordi is dark blue. The border features beige and rusty red.
This Kordi has had admirers before you. It was hand knotted about 1940. It has been thoroughly cleaned and only partially restored condition but is in good condition. We have not completely restored this Kordi because we think it is as it is effect. If you would like, we will of course restore the rug further for you. We can restore almost any rug to an almost perfect condition.
The pile of this Kordi has been hand-knotted from high-quality virgin wool. Virgin wool is obtained through the gentle shearing of sheep. Virgin wool is a sustainable, natural raw material with a number of impressive properties; due to the wool's natural fat content, the surface repels water droplets and is thus naturally impervious to dirt. Wool also offers excellent thermal insulation, has a regulating effect on living climate and muffles sound. The backing (weft and warp threads) of this Kordi is made of virgin wool.
