Incredible 15/15 1400+kpsi Hereke rug
This extremely fine Hereke rug is not only amongst the finest handmade rugs we offer with an incredible 15/15 quality (1400+ kpsi), but it is rare to find a Hereke with this design and in this excellent condition.
Finding authentic old Turkish Hereke silk pieces like this one has become very rare as most tend to be very expensive and are not available on the open market. We are fortunate to be able to be offered a few of these incredibly rare Hereke rugs from families or private collectors and this is a perfect example such a piece.
This fine 15/15 1400+kpsi Hereke rug is in remarkable condition and was obviously treated like a genuine piece of art. Back when it was made in the 60's, the price would have been the equivalent to that of a nice car of that time and it is just amazing how weavers could even make such a piece by hand. To give you an idea, a 15/15 quality means that each centimeter has 15 knots or 3 double Turkish knots per 2 millimeters. Now turn back the clock 60+ years and imagine a weaver sitting there for months on end weaving this small rug.
In addition to its like new condition, this 15/15 Hereke piece features a column design with an apparent Persian influence, which is very hard to find in Turkish Hereke rugs. The details and incredible workmanship along with the uniquess of the design make it a perfect addition to any Hereke collection. As is often the case, the Hereke signature is in the bottom center of the rug.
