Turkaman carpets are handknotted by the Turkaman tribes of Central Asia. They are made using high quality wool and at times silk is incorporated to accentuate the details.
The carpets are known for their bold and intricate geometric designs and often feature repeating patterns of diamonds, octagons, and other shapes. They can be found in a variety of colours, the most common being deep reds and blues, with accents of white and yellow.
Turkaman carpets are renowned for their unique designs and often feature a wider border solely on the short sides and not on the longer sides as is more common practice in other carpet types.
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.
