AHAR Carpet Properties:

Visibility: Carpets from AHAR have a beautiful semi-nomadic appearance. The most famous design is HERIZ, which is the main product of the region. They have one medallion in the center and a smaller medallion inside.

Quality: The quality of AHAR carpets varies. Old ones (before 1945) are of higher quality. AHAR produces many carpets that are sold widely as TABRIZ and HERIZ. The quality of AHAR carpets is good, but not as high as TABRIZ or HERIZ. Always check the borders, as AHAR carpets usually do not have straight lines like those in a good TABRIZ or HERIZ.

Size & Shapes: AHAR carpets are sized similar to TABRIZ carpets. The majority of them are mid-size (4 x 6 to 8 x 10 feet), but you can also find large rugs up to 10 x 18 feet.

Color: Light ivory, red, brown and light blue are common colors in AHAR carpets.>

Texture: Soft wool, thicker than TABRIZ, with no tight pile.

Foundation: Warp is mostly cotton; weft is either cotton or wool.

Knots: Weavers in AHAR use Persian knots. You should check the back of the carpet because the quality of the carpet depends upon the number of knots, which varies, but averages from around 120 KPSI (30 RAJ) up to 475 KPSI (60 RAJ).

Price: AHAR carpets are nice and reasonably priced. They are in the mid-range category so, if you are looking for a good looking carpet and you do not want to pay a high price, an AHAR carpet is the answer. Expect to pay $4-$15 Per Square Foot (PSF) for a carpet from AHAR.
