KELARDASHT Carpet Properties:

Visibility: Rugs from KELARDASHT have a very warm and smooth nomadic touch. All have geometric patterns that include two or more medallions.

Quality: The quality of KELARDASHT rugs varies. The older ones (before 1960) are very good. From 1965 to 1980, the quality faded due to the massive interest of western collectors that forced the weavers to modify their patterns and colors. After the revolution (1979), the quality gradually rose to its original level as the weavers returned to traditional designs and colors. The rugs from KELARDASHT are durable and extremely strong.

Size & Shapes: The majority of KELARDASHT rugs are small (2 x 3 to 4 x 6 feet) and mid-size (4 x 6 to 8 x 10 feet).

Color: Dark red, dark blue, brown are the dominant colors.

Texture: Wool, cotton; pile is usually thick and soft.

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

Knots: Weavers in KELARDASHT use Turkish and Persian knots. You should check the back of carpet because the quality of the carpet depends upon the number of knots, which varies, but averages around 120 KPSI(30 RAJ).

Price: KELARDASHT rugs, especially older ones, are in high demand among rug collectors. Expect to pay $4-$11 Per Square Foot (PSF) for carpets from Kelardasht. You will pay much more for antique ones. Persian Oriental Rugs Value  Persian Oriental Rugs Value  Persian Oriental Rugs Value

KELARDASHT
The northern part of IRAN, including the provinces of GILLAN and MAZANDARAN, is rich in history. There are some traces of Turkish and Kurdish influences seen in these nomadic and/or semi-nomadic people, but they are mostly of Persian origin.

Turkish and Mogul tribes who are descendants of the Mongolians (led by Kengis Khan) who invaded the country in the 13th century have been living in this region for many centuries. The province of Gillian has a higher Persian nomadic population.

These peaceful people are documented to have been weaving rugs for over 3000 years. They have a migratory lifestyle and almost all the women, along with most of the men, possess the incredible talent of rug weaving. In some cases, it is the family's main source of income.

KELARDASHT
The people of the northern regions of IRAN have a long history of weaving durable rugs. The tribal pieces made here always have wool pile The foundation of the rugs may be either cotton or goat hair. The coloring is mainly done with the use of natural vegetable dyes.

The Persian asymmetrical knot (always more precise and much finer) is used much more often than the symmetrical Turkish double knot. The construction of these rugs is very difficult for these people because they live nomadically, far away from the conveniences of modern technology. They make their own looms, which are placed horizontally on the ground and are easily dismantled for transport.
