from Ardabil to Azilal Berber Rug

 Ardabil Rugs or Ardebil

Ardabil Town located in the Iranian Azerbaijan mountains, Ardabil, being a frontier town, is influenced by the Caucasian geometric design while maintaining its identity. The Rugs in this area also have subjects similar to those of Heritz. The Ardabil carpet exposed in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London has made the master Maqusud Kashani, who knotted it in 1539–1540, immortal. Ardabil Rugs in the catalogue.

Armature

The set of warp and weave interwoven with the chains.

Armenibaff or Armenibafti Rugs

knotted in Iran, more precisely in the  Chahar Mahal district by weavers of the Bakhtiari tribe of Armenian origin. See Rugs Bakhtiar.

Art Design Collection Rugs

Hand-knotted in Nepal according to ancient methods on traditional looms. They have a rather dense knot and a 1 cm thickness, so they are also lighter than traditional Nepalese Rugs. The wool, dyed with natural dyes obtained from plants and cochineal, is of a wonderful quality: soft, bright, light and does not produce superfluous hair. In these Rugs there are also areas knotted in silk and others weaved with the LOOP technique. This shows light and three-dimensional effects that a just-knotted carpet fails to convey. See the Rugs of the collection Art Design Collection

Asmalyk

They are the pockets of Turkoman origin, pentagon-shaped to hang on the sides of the camel. The name comes from the Turkish “Asmak” which means hanging.

From the Turkish language, it is a rectangular or trapezoidal blanket for the horse. They are made of flat fabric; sometimes they are knotted and usually depict rather fine workmanship.

Aubusson and Needle Point carpets

Originally, around the sixteenth century, they were made in the French town of Aubusson, famous for its Rugs and tapestries; subsequently they spread rapidly to the courts of Louis XIV. Much later French teachers taught Chinese weavers the methods and today in China’s laboratories Aubusson and Needle Point are perfectly reproduced according to ancient techniques. Today, to make them resemble as much as possible to the ancient specimens, when the pieces are finished they are given a treatment to give them the tone and flavour of the past, with very good results. The Aubusson Rugs can be dry-washed, but we advise that it would be  better done with water and not in the washing machine. For ordinary maintenance we recommend using a good vacuum cleaner (not carpet beaters!!) very gently and at least every three days.

Azilal  Berber Rugs

Are characterized by the wool’s whiteness and softness, associated with the use of cotton and other fibres to define the drawings. Very often these, besides following the symbolism of their region, are the result of the artistic inspiration of the woman who created them. Therefore every rug can be considered a work of art unique and not reproducible. See Berbers Azilal Rugs of the High Atlas.
