The city of Mashad, capital of the enormous Khorassan province is located in the North Eastern part of Iran. With a population of 3 million inhabitants, it is the second most populous city and also the holiest city in Iran. Every year more than 12 million pilgrims travel to the city to visit the shrine of the eighth Shia Imam, Imam Reza who is buried here.

Mashad has a long and rich history of carpet making and is known for making good quality carpets, often of larger sizes but found in all possible sizes. The wool used in these carpets comes from Khorassan, considered to be among the best quality wool in the country. As a result Mashad carpets are particularly soft to touch.

They generally tend to have a large central medallion, often in red and dark blue colour tones and decorated with lighter floral patterns.

Mashad carpets often resemble Keshan carpets. They generally tend to have a large central medallion, in red and dark blue colour tones sometimes with a distinct purplish hue, adorned with lighter floral herati patterns.

Patina

Our collection of Patina carpets is comprised of older Persian carpets that all show signs of natural wear and ageing. The carpets are carefully selected with the intention of preserving their cultural heritage and breathing new life into them. All our Patina carpets are washed before undergoing a thorough inspection. If any signs of damage are found these are attended to, and if the pile is unevenly trimmed it is gently polished down to achieve an even pile and add a natural sheen to the carpet.

The result is a one-of-a-kind carpet that still possesses all the qualities of an older hand-knotted carpet. A beautiful carpet with a genuine feel that has intentionally been allowed to retain a distinct patina appearance: to be discovered and admired by yet another generation to come.
