CHAPTER: Pak Persian Rugs
Description: Pak Persians were popularized in the 70s during the Iran embargo. To fill the gap in the market left by this, Pakistan began making these high quality rugs, usually a 16/16 or 16/18 quality. These New Zealand wool rugs are no longer produced, as it is too labor intensive and few people have the patience to spend the 3 years it takes to make them.
Description: These high-quality rugs use 100% hand spun wool, but the color variations are more subtle than other hand-spun wool rugs, as the knot count is incredibly high. To keep these rugs soft, cleaning is done sparingly, and not aggressively as to maintain the silky texture.
