Botemir Rugs

In the province of Markaz, the city of Arak is situated in the middle region of Persia. Botemir is not a reference to a particular town, but within Arak, this type of design is popular weave. The colours are often dull and dark red, dark blue, red, brown, and beige, and the patterns in Botemir rugs that are common are flora and fauna, with beautiful depictions of flowers, repeated in a mesmerizing geometric pattern. The knot density of Botemir rugs, a traditional measure for quality of handmade Persian carpets and handmade Persian rugs, range from 30 knots per square inch (KPSI) on the low end to 160 knots per square inch (KPSI), which is higher than many other regions. For two Persian rugs of the same age, origin, condition and design, the one with the higher number of knots will be the more valuable. Botemir rugs normally have a pile, determined by the density and the length of the carpet fibres that are used to weave these Persian rugs, of wool on a foundation, the strong threads that make up the base of Persian carpets, is made up of cotton.
