A vintage Sultanabad Persian Carpet No. 800185 308x221cm

The maturing process for carpets like the one presented here is profound. These carpets are exceptionally durable, and it takes decades of wear to gradually expose the warp and weft. This natural wearing down cannot be artificially induced; instead, it unfolds over time through regular use, influenced by various factors in a somewhat unpredictable manner.

The Sultanabad carpet showcased here is truly a marvelous piece. Dating back to the early 20th century, it epitomizes a genre of rugs that Ziglar and Co, a German company based in the UK, produced in workshops around 1883 in Sultanabad. These rugs were highly sought after in European markets, characterized by their allover patterns, muted colors, and large stylized flowers.

This piece seamlessly complements contemporary settings, adding a layer of cultural richness and inner charm to any space. Its harmonious color combination, pleasant patina, and interesting texture make it a remarkable addition to both modern and classic ambiances. Furthermore, it serves as an intriguing conversation piece, inviting discussions about the history and historical circumstances surrounding its creation.
