Fine Persian ‘Veramin’ Rug *

* This rug is an example of what I offer. Please enquire about current stock to see availability”.

The city of Veramin lies about 60 miles/97kms to the south-east of the Iranian (Persian) capital Tehran and is one of the best, but least known, centres of fine rug weaving. Their designs are generally geometric and repeating, featuring connecting circles of floral motifs ( Mina Khani )  which give the impression of a  field of flowers lattice. The wool is machine spun and the weave is fine so the pile, usually with the main ground colour of blue or red, is low and tight. I have never seen a wool hand knotted Persian Veramin that is unattractive or dull in colour.

One of my favourites rug provenances, which are somewhere between a formal City/Workshop and Village style rug, and which unfailingly add a warm and sophisticated glow to any room. To top it off they are durable too and take a lot of wear whilst looking better with age- as long as properly washed every 5 years or so.

This excellent hand knotted wool Persian Veramin rug has the typical soft red main ground colour with attractive blues, greens, greys and creams as secondary tones.

Please use your rug with a suitable underlay which will protect the back of the knots and allow dirt to fall through the rug. Vacuum sparingly, once a week is sufficient, and do so on a low power and without the rotating brush, as this strips the pile. Clean professionally at least once every five years. Turn your rug every year if possible to even out footfall patterns and sun fading. Never leave your rug undisturbed under furniture in the dark. Keep a moth trap in the room if possible.
