About

Colors tend to be subtle and Dorokhsh carpets can often be of substantial size. They are produced in the Dorokhsh hills in the Qanat region northeast of Birjand in Khorasan Province Iran.
A Dorokhsh Carpet is a decorator's carpet. Dorokhsh Carpets are made with a Persian or asymmetric knot. The knot may be open either right or left. The foundation on the antiques is mostly wool but on 20th century rugs cotton warps and wefts are most common. Knot counts are fine, ranging from 120 to 275 kpsi.
