The handmade carpets' colors look different depending on the side you view the carpet from.This is because the pile of handmade carpets, in contrast to machine made carpets, is inclined so that the carpet has protection from dirt and wear. For a detailed view please click the images below.


Kelims are carpets without pile. Many times the front and the back side do not differ. They are usually made by nomads in Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, Morocco and the Caucasus. The designs are geometric and of intense colors. The most common materials are wool or silk. They have many more uses than just floor coverings, including as curtains, as well decorative and even as saddle for horses and camels.
Modern Kelims are made mainly in India in several qualities.

About weave and colors of nomadic carpets
Some carpets, mostly nomadic, have stripes of another colour in the weaving, this happens because every wool quality absorbs different the colour, but the weaver does not see it before the final wash, where the carpet gets its final appearance.
Small subtle stripes many times "give live" to a carpet, but large contrasts in colour are considered annoying and reduce the value of a carpet.
This phenomenon is called abrash, a word derived from the word rash in Fars language (mean cloudiness).
Examples
Also the form of nomadic carpets may be a little crooked as they are made under simple conditions and on foldable-not stable looms.
Despite the naturalness of these phenomena, our company tries to eliminate them as far as possible and selects mainly high quality carpets without flaws, with very strict criteria.

Other information’s

Nomadic carpets were for many years a smart purchase with a low price. But it is unfortunately a fact that this changes every year. The offer of original nomadic carpets continuously decreases with the result that prices go up.
Many current nomads are no longer move continuously as before, this has results in the nomadic tradition and culture. The carpets and rugs of course continue to be an important element of their lives.
The materials used are homemade and the looms are usually horizontal and foldable.
They do not use a drawing of the carpet, but they weave by memory.
The Designs are influenced by their environment and they have been handed over from generation to generation.
