Place of origin
The city of Senneh is now called Sanandaj and is in the center of the West Persian province of Kurdistan. In Iran, Sanandaj is famous for handmade backgammon boards made of walnut root wood, as well as rugs. Senneh rugs are also sometimes called Sanandaj rugs today. The classic Senneh rugs have only one weft thread, so they are easy to identify from the back. The finer they are knotted, the flatter the pile is sheared.
The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Senneh. 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 excellent contrast to the center.
In the middle of the central field of this Senneh is the symmetrical center, also called medallion. The design of the field is arranged in such a way that it gives the impression that the medallion is floating on the field.
The background of this Senneh is dark blue. The colors dark red and dark blue dominate the overall impression. The border features blue gray and dark red. The dark red center combines the colors dark blue and off white.
The pile of this Senneh 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 Senneh are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.
