The History of Kerman Rugs

The history of rug weaving in Kerman goes back several centuries ago to the Sasanian era. Of course, before rug weaving, it was one of the important centers for the production of shawls, and when shawl fabrics fell from prosperity, they turned to carpet weaving.

Due to the use of natural fibers and eye-catching colors, the Kerman silk rug and also Kashan rugs have high strength and durability, and due to the use of attractive and professional colors and resistance to wear, it is highly regarded. In the production of Kerman rugs.

In the 11th century, Kerman was one of the main centers for the production of high-quality Persian rugs. Designers at this time were at the peak of their art talent and the weaving techniques of Kerman rugs were complicated in such a way that no example of Kerman rugs can be seen in other parts of Iran.

They changed it so that the threads were placed on two different levels, and some of the woolen wefts were placed firmly. Just like Tabriz rugs and Isfahan rugs, several historians have identified the Kerman handmade rug as one the best types of Persian rug, and one of the main reasons for that is the high quality of the wool and silk in these regions.

Kerman Carpet Knot Density (Raj)

To calculate the Raj or knot density in the Kerman rug knot, the total number of seeds in one knot in width and one knot in length must be counted. If there are 35 knots in 7 cm of width and 35 knots in 7 cm of length, this carpet is called 35 pairs or Raj 70, and so on.

Currently, the finest and most finely woven Kerman carpet is 120 pairs or Raj 240. Until a few years ago, most of the low knot density rugs in Kerman were 70 pairs, but now it is woven up to 50 pairs. Of course, this problem is considered a big defect for rugs from the point of view; in addition to the fact that these rugs are woven without knots causing their value to decrease.
