Antique Dorokhsh Rugs and Carpets
Antique Dorokhsh Carpets are very much a decorator's carpet. Colors tend to be subtle and Dorokhsh carpets can often be of substantial size. This makes them suitable for decorators since subdued rugs in large sizes are perfect for decorating better homes.
Dorokhsh Carpets are produced in the Dorokhsh hills in the Qanat region northeast of Birjand in Khorasan Province Iran.
Dorokhsh Carpets are made with a Persian or asymmetric knot. The knot may be open either right or let. The foundation on the antiques is mostly wool but on 20th century rugs cotton warps and wefts are most common. Knot counts are fine, ranging from 120 to 275 kpsi.
