Colors and Patterns

They manufacture the rugs with a ropy, shiny and almost natural dyed hand-spun yarn, that provides a very durable surface and beautiful color scale. Common for all these carpets is that they are nowadays made on a cotton warp with one weft. The patterns are mostly geometrical, but sometimes floral motifs occur. Materials and design can be of very varying quality. They used to tie the old carpets on wool wrap (before 1920), different from today’s cotton warp. The younger carpets (after 1960) often have synthetic colors and less fine wool than older carpets. The most common sizes are Dozar and also Zaronim (which are approximately 200×120 cm and 150×100 cm).
