Kerman - Kirman Rugs

Kirmans of the late 19th century are thin fine rugs with most often overall repeat pattern. Here a subtly colored diagonal lozenge lattice encloses floral medallions. There is no distinct field color but rather a harmony of rust honey cream brown and various blues. There is no main wide border but as is often the case with Kirmans of this period they have multiple stripes, the widest in ivory with vines and small palmettes. Light blue so popular with Kirman weavers here appear in two narrow borders. This Kirman is the perfect carpet for those seeking a period look.

Vacuum your rug frequently and use a vacuum which uses suction and does not have bristles. If possible, set vacuum to low power setting and vacuum the rug up and down and do not use a back-and-forth motion.

If possible, rotate the rug every few years to allow foot traffic to be spread evenly and shade the rug from direct sunlight to avoid fading in areas.

A rug pad is recommended on all surfaces to prevent slipping and stop marking if on floors with grooves or lines. Professional cleaning is recommended every two or three years.
