The Yazd carpet is always a functional and complementing accessory. Each carpet is hand-woven in nepal using traditional tools and methods.
With a knot density of 80 knots per square centimeter the weave displays an exceptional “super 80's” quality. Each carpet is made of pure, hand-spun new wool from the Tibetan highlands, with patterned stripes gained by weaving in strands of contrasting silk.
We guaranty that each Yazd is produced in a socially conscious and environmentally responsible manner without involving child labor.
