Amazing Hereke Korhan rug with stunning 14/14 quality, ~1200+ kpsi, and a custom made framed pictorial design!!
This is one of two genuine Hereke carpets that we aquired from a private party that had their Hereke custom framed. With a 14/14 quality ~1200+ kpsi, which puts it in the very high class of the Turkish Hereke rugs. The remarkable quality is made possible by weavers making the rugs literally while looking through a magnifying glass, which is an old weaving technique that is all but gone. The Korhan workshop is one of the few remaining workshops in Istanbul and we are very fortunate to be able to offer such a piece. It was apparently made in the mid 90's and since it was kept in a beautiful frame the entire time, it is like new and in flawless condition. Please note that I am offering this pieces with the frame as you can see in the picture and it will be shipped as is. If you have any questions about the framing or need special assistance, please let me know.

Due to the large number of inquiries I receive about genuine and fake Hereke rugs and the misinformation that are being peddled by online and rug store retailers, I have created my own YouTube channel where I offer factual information for you like the video below that is about Hereke Silk Rugs. You can see the video if you view this rug page on a laptop or desktop.
