The look and the feel of fine antique Persian masterpieces has been recreated in the Master Craft collection. This quality is totally new to the market. From Turkey, this machine made is a cross woven Wilton construction of a very dense polyester pile. Polyester is not on soil resistant but wears great and is the only synthetic fiber that reflects color most like a fine wool. These rugs capture the sophistication and refinement of the classical 11th century Safavid court carpets, all woven in stunning jewel-toned colors. The actual pieces duplicated are from the middle of the 19th century, woven by master weavers such as Kurban Dai and Faradji in Tabriz.
