1. What inspired you to begin your Persian rug collection?
We have been working on updating our house over the last couple of years, and adding the beautiful Persian rugs to our home was a finishing touch.
2. How long have you been collecting rugs and how many rugs do you own so far?
We began the rug collection with our purchases from you. We have 7 to date.
3. What particular selection criteria do you have when buying a rug? Please share your tips and tricks with other rug enthusiasts.
The rugs we selected were based on the space we are working with and our existing decor. We relied on Rose’s expertise as to the quality, description of colors, and details of the patterns, as it is sometimes hard to select from pictures on the internet.
4. Why did you Choose Catalina?
In performing Internet research on a rug company to work with, we selected Catalina Rug based on length of business and their customer reviews. Rose and her team provided excellent customer service to us as well.
5. Why Persian Rugs?
Persian Rugs are beautiful works of art, and we enjoy looking at them as much as the art on our walls.
In a region known to produce very high quality rugs…
The rug featured in today’s message is one of the best pieces of Persian rug floor-art we’ve ever laid eyes on.
One look at it, and you instantly know it’s world class…
- The center medallion detail is exquisite.
- The color majestic.
- The look and feel sublime.
The reason why this rug is so beautiful and high-quality is because it features the renowned: Shash-Kalany signature.
Synonymous with the highest standards in rug weaving, the rugs from this workshop could take many years to create.
The Creation Of This Rare And Sought After Rug
In fact, the time invested into this rug clocks in at a staggering 2779 Days, and 25011 Hours.
Meaning, this rug took almost 8 years to make.
Which just goes to show how serious the Shash-Kalany was about creating perfection.
And I say “was”, because this specialized, high-end workshop —stopped producing rugs of this caliber over 40 years ago.
Making this Mashad 9’9″ x 12’2″ – rare and sought after.
Now, because this particular rug is of such high-quality…
Emanating beauty and radiating magnificence…
It is, as you would expect, priced accordingly.
But you don’t have to buy it to enjoy it.
