QAZVIN(GHAZVIN)Carpet Properties:

Visibility: QAZVIN (GHAZVIN) rugs and carpets usually have curvilinear patterns. I should also mention that you find some tribal patterns made in surrounding villages that are sold as QAZVIN (GHAZVIN). Today, QAZVIN (GHAZVIN) does not produce rugs. The last year of production was around 1930-1935. QAZVIN (GHAZVIN) rugs and carpets have visages similar to KASHAN and BIJAR.

Quality: The quality of QAZVIN (GHAZVIN) rugs and carpets varies. Older ones (before 1930) are very good, but some of the later ones have a lower number of Knots Per Square Inch (KPSI) and are not as good.

Size & Shapes: QAZVIN (GHAZVIN) rugs and carpets come in different sizes, but the majority of them are mid-size (4 x 6 to 8 x 10 feet).

Color: Dark red and powerful blue colors predominate, with ivory forming a beautiful contrast.

Texture: Soft wool; thin, tight pile.

Foundation: Warps is mostly cotton; wefts is either cotton or wool.

Knots: Inspection of the back of the carpet is important because the weavers in QAZVIN (GHAZVIN) use both Persian and Turkish knots. The quality of the carpet depends on the numbers of knots, which varies, but usually averages around 220 KPSI(40 RAJ).

Price: Old QAZVIN (GHAZVIN) rugs and carpets are very valuable. Expect to pay $5-$20 Per Square Foot (PSF) for an old carpet from QAZVIN (GHAZVIN). Keep in mind that, as a rule, the higher the KPSI, the greater is the price.

Where is QAZVIN(GHAZVIN)?

JAMEH MOSQE, QAZVIN

QAZVIN
QAZVIN (GHAZVIN) is located in a vast plain 144 km (90 Miles) west of TEHRAN. The city was founded in the time of Sassanide Shapour I, famous as Shad Shapour, in order to prevent the invasions of Dialameh. It was gradually developed as the main nucleus of QAZVIN (GHAZVIN). After the invasion of Iran by Arabs (the Islamic conquests), this city was surrounded by one of the famous Arab commanders named Bera-ebn Azeb in the year 24 AH (644 CE).

During the Islamic Era, QAZVIN (GHAZVIN) became one of the Arab military bases. In the Omavi Caliphate, Jameh Mosque-one of the reputable mosques of the city until Haroon-al-Rashid's reign-was constructed.
