Patina is a series of carefully selected carpets. These carpets have a certain wear that does not reduce the impression of them, and is in fact part of their beautiful natural aging process. Common to these selected carpets is that they are at least 40 years old and have an elegance and harmony in both pattern and color. We select them in order to preserve the great cultural heritage and to allow them to be discovered by a new generation.
All Patina carpets are washed, then thoroughly examined for any potential damage that might compromise the carpet’s continued sustainability. If the pile is unevenly worn or if the surface layer of the pile is damaged this is carefully and gently polished down to give a beautiful smooth surface. The end result is the best of both worlds, a sustainable carpet which clearly perceives the majestic feeling that only an older carpet can reflect. You also get a beautiful carpet that will not only continue to increase in value, but that is moreover a pleasure to behold.
These older oriental carpets are unique works of art that deserve to be preserved and used by several generations to come.
This carpet is knotted in workshops in the city of Tabriz in northwestern Persia. It is a sturdy durable carpet with a short rough pile. The patterns can consist of a centrally placed medallion surrounded by arabesques, weeping willows and cypresses. Another popular motif is the four seasons, describing the Persian farmers life during spring, summer, autumn and winter.
