Amazing 13/13 quality Turkish Hereke Cinar rug with ~1000 kpsi.
This absolutely stunning pure silk Turkish Hereke Cinar artpiece with ~1000 kpsi and a 13/13 quality is a larger version of one of my favorite ultra fine Hereke-Cinar that we have with a 20/20 quality.
I was absolutely thrilled when I first saw this gorgeous pictorial sunset design in a Hereke rug and it took a lot of effort in coming to an agreement with the owner since it it was a 20/20 quality with about 2500 kpsi, which puts it in a whole different league. Knowing that the Turkish Hereke weavers like the Cinar workshop would often make different pieces with the same designs in various sizes and qualities, we made it a point to try to find other ones so that more collectors can enjoy pieces like this Hereke-Cinar as well.
The condition of this fine Hereke Cinar is outstanding and the 13/13 quality refers to the fact that it features an amazing 13 knots per centimeter, which translates to about 1000 kpsi. These type of silk Hereke Cinar rugs are some of the most rarest of genuine Cinar rugs and even though there are a few pieces still being made, the quality of the silk in new pieces is far thinner than the older pieces. If you look at the close-ups, you can see how the setting sun is reflecting of the water with the little pebbles. Its the sharp details and the black background, which is perfect in bringing out all of the features in this beautiful design. Also, thanks to its size, the full beauty of the design is perfectly displayed and its simply the kind of Hereke-Cinar that many of my clients love to add to their collection.
