Senneh Medallion Hand Knotted Rug 190x125 cm
Senneh rugs are hand knotted rugs made by Kurds who live in or around the town of Senneh (now more properly Sanandaj) in western Iran. The rugs of Senneh are prized for their delicate pattern, colouring and fine weave. The Herati and Boteh patterns are the most common. The colours used are those that are characteristic of Kurdish rugs, dark blue and red. Fine wool yarn is used for the pile, while warp and weft are made of simpler cotton.
Most of the rugs knotted by the Kurdish minority are coarse rugs that are ideal for everyday use because they are robust and durable.
