EXTRA INFODimensions: 168*108cm
This is a genuine vintage Persian rug in excellent condition with very good pile for its age (around 40 years old).
Arak rugs are knotted in the city of Arak. Arak is a famous rug weaving centre and home to the Ziegler and Co. carpet company when they first went to Iran looking to have “toned down” Persian rugs for the western market in the 1880s. Anyone familiar with Ziegler rugs will see some similarity to Arak designs, particularly in the all over patterns.
West End Co. is a Brisbane based store and Australia wide online retailer of genuine Persian rugs. tribal rugs, and kilim rugs. We pride ourselves on hand selecting all of our pieces from rug weaving centres in Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, and Pakistan.
