Ingredients used in handmade fine carpets
Handmade carpet fabric is used in a variety of carpets and in khoi carpets for warp and weft, however some woven tribes use wool at the base of the carpet and in silk carpets often use silk as a base. And they also use candles.
A candle is a material or fiber used in the weaving of various types of rugs and handmade rugs. The main ingredients used in Iranian carpets and handmade carpets are khaki: cloth, wool, silk, and cotton.
Wool is the most common material for knitting Iranian handmade carpets, especially the fine handmade carpets of Khoy, both because of its softness and durability and because of the availability of these natural resources to the Iranian people. The best wool is generally made from cold heights and mountain topography in areas of Iran is suitable for producing excellent wool quality. Other wools come from Australia and New Zealand. Curly wool is the best type of wool, it is a high quality wool that is very soft and durable.
But natural silk is very expensive and therefore less used in carpets. Silk is made from a cocoon of silkworms on the leaves of the berry. Silk has a finer advantage over other natural fibers. However, although not as thick as wool and durable, due to the complexity of details, the high cost and cost involved in making silk carpets are recommended to be used as wall hangers or in low-pass areas. Some carpets use small amounts of silk with a wool candle to highlight the details and add depth to the character. Flax silk is usually used at the base of the carpet. However, some weavers (such as Turkmen) use it to introduce white details and create a contrast in color and texture.
Colors used in Khoy handmade carpet
The colors of Persian rugs and handmade carpets of fine fish come before the knitting process of carpets that are dyed wool or silk.
There are conflicting views on carpet colors. Some believe that the more traditional method should be used and that only carpet dyes should be used. The counter argument is that chemical dyes have been in use for over 100 years, and many shades and designs are not obtained using the natural coloring process.
We believe that both types of colors have their advantages. Natural colors often provide a natural palette. While carpets using chrome colors can be brighter, brighter and more vibrant than their plant counterparts.
Choosing the type of color really depends on the look you want your carpet to have. Some chemical dyes are faster than herbal dyes, while some herbal dyes are faster than chromium dyes. So choosing the color really depends on the design and the customer's needs.
Khoy handmade carpet price
There are many factors involved in pricing a Khoy handmade carpet. For example, different techniques, weaving methods and different types of yarn can affect the price of a khaki handmade rug. Also, the workshop carpets should not be compared with the nomadic carpets. As a result, different working conditions will set a different price.
However, the impact of raw materials on final prices is not comparable to wages, as most raw materials are supplied domestically. The cities of Sirjan, Kerman, Kermanshah and Mashhad provide excellent wool. Cotton and herbal colors are also widely available in Iran. But parts of the required fibers are imported from Australia and New Zealand, and silk imports from China and several other countries.
But overall the speed of weaving, the type of carpet, the size of the carpet, the amount of time spent knitting, the complexity and density of the carpet as well as the amount of wages determine the price of a khaki handmade carpet.
