The city of Yazd is located halfway between Isfahan and Kerman, in the centre of Iran. This historical city is famous for its beautiful architecture, quality carpets and delicious confectionaries. Carpets have been made here for over 400 years and the city was one of the earliest carpet weaving sites granted by the royal workshop of the Safavid Dynasty. 

Yazd carpets are strongly influenced by both Kerman and Keshan carpet designs and it is common to find Yazd carpets with open field designs and floral borders that resemble Kerman carpets, as well as carpets with one big central medallion that look like typical Keshan carpets. Yazd carpets are famous for their detailed floral designs and often come in deep purple and red, natural vegetable dye colour tones. Madder is cultivated in the desert surrounding the city of Yazd and madder root is used as a natural dye for the different shades of red. The carpets have a cotton warp and a thick, slightly higher soft woolen pile. 

Yazd carpets are appreciated for their high quality and refined craftsmanship and are an excellent quality/price investment.

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.
