Place of origin
The city of Sirjan is located in the west of the province of Kerman. The Afshars settled there knot their rugs in Sirjan and the surrounding villages mostly at home. Therefore Sirjan is often called Afshar. The so-called Sehkaleh pattern is characteristic of Sirjan rugs. The medallion has three heads on both sides. In Persian "seh" means three and " kaleh" head. Typical colors are light red and warm dark blue. They are made using the Persian knot. Warp and weft threads are made of cotton, with the weft thread being doubled.
The embellished edging (border) forms a glorious contrast to the center and creates a transition at the edge of the rug.
The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Sirjan. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It creates a pleasant atmosphere without dominating the style of the room.
The repeating elements in the center field of this Sirjan 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 Sirjan is beige. The border features dark blue and dark brown.
The pile of this Sirjan 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 Sirjan are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.
