Place of origin
Rudbar is a small town in the northwest of Iran. It is known for its olives and embroideries. Traditionally, few rugs are produced in Rudbar. These rugs are made following the Herat pattern. Special attention is paid to the border of Rudbar rugs. This usually features a light floral border in an artistic, filigree-like pattern.
The luxuriant flower motifs of this Herati are elegant and varied. The graceful vegetative symbols representing flowers, leaves and branches are artfully intertwined.
The round format of this hand-knotted Herati is very rare and is ideal for rooms with a round dining or living room table.
The edge of the rug is decorated with an edging (border). The border forms a excellent contrast to the center.
The repeating elements in the center field of this Herati 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 Herati is beige. The colors blue gray and rusty red dominate the overall impression. The border features rusty red and blue gray.
The pile of this Herati 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 weft and warp threads of this Herati are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.
