FARAHAN Carpet Properties:

Visibility: FARAHAN rugs and carpets have been prized for their sturdy construction and their quiet, all-over patterning. The most customary border is the "turtle" (a pair of split arabesques) on a ground of corrosive green that is produced by the use of a copper salt that causes the wool dyed with it to wear more rapidly than the portions dyed with other colors, resulting in a sculptured surface effect.

Quality: The rugs and carpets from the FARAHAN district are excellent and are world famous. SAROUKis the most renowned product of the region.

Size & Shapes: FARAHAN rugs come in different sizes, but the majority of them are mid-size (4 x 6 to 8 x 10 feet).

Color: Most of them have a dark-blue ground with an endless repeat of the HERATI design in which a diamond lattice peeps through a tangle of rose blossoms and leaves. The coloring may be continuously varied within such a repeat, producing attractive changes in effect.

Texture: Soft wool; thin, tight pile.

Foundation: Warp is mostly cotton; weft is either cotton or wool.

Knots: Weavers in FARAHAN use Persian knots. The quality of the carpet depends upon the number of knots, which varies, but averages from around 120 KPSI (30 RAJ) up to 475 KPSI (60 RAJ).

Price: FARAHAN rugs are among the finest quality carpets, so expect to pay $7-$20 Per Square Foot (PSF) for a carpet from FARAHAN. Keep in mind that, as a rule, the higher the KPSI, the greater is the price. Persian Oriental Rugs Value Persian Oriental Rugs Value Persian Oriental Rugs Value

Farahan
The FARAHAN district is located in central of IRAN around 580 km south of TEHRAN, among the cities of ARAK, QOM, and KASHAN. This district has a long history in the Persian Rug industry. In the 19th century, many British Companies opened factories to produce fine rugs for export to Europe. In western countries today, FARAHAN rugs and carpets are known as MAHAL, which received its name from MAHALLAT (a city in the FARAHAN district, south of ARAK).
