Kashmar Carpet - Older East Persian

Older East Persian Kashmar Carpet

Size: 6 foot 6 inch by 9 foot 5 inch.

I like the better Eastern Persian Carpets. When the wool, color and construction are good they can be very good. This is a really nice one.

This is a Kashmar carpet, Kashmar produces some of the great carpets of Eastern Persia. Great wool and attractive designs make these carpets sought after. One important point about Kashmar carpets is the quality of the wool.

How We Select Our Rugs

The color in this rug is very even and well balanced. The slightly darker area is from our lighting not a problem with the rugs.
