Handmade rug production process

In this page, you've got familiar with the production process of a handmade carpet in Farahan Carpet such as sheep shearing, spinning, dyeing, weaving, designing, final services.

High Quality Wool Preparation

At the beginning of spring, the required sheep wool for the high-quality handmade Persian rug is sheared in some parts of the Zagros Mountains in the west of Iran.
Sheep raised in the Zagros Mountains produce better quality wool than sheep in the wetlands. Also, wool that is cut in spring has better quality than autumn wool. White wool has better dyeing properties than other wool, so they are more desirable in Farahan Carpet.
This wool has the highest quality of available wool and after shearing, they are completely washed with natural detergents and prepared for spinning by hand.

Hand Spinning of Wool

The sheared wool is hand-spun by artisan women of nomadic areas. Without respect to the beautiful traditions of these people who are in full interaction with nature, long-term business relationships can not be established with them.
Wool spinning is a process that small fibers of the wool are twisted and continuous fibers are produced. This method has been used by humans for thousands of years to produce wool fibers.
The importance of spinning wool in the handmade carpet is that when spinning wool by hand, the fibers produced become thin and thick, which makes some portions of yarns more tinted during the vegetal dyeing process due to their thinner thickness.
They become less pale so that this color spectrum in a bunch of fibers that eventually turns into a carpet makes the final carpet look very natural and completely made and polished by the carpet weaver.



Our wool is dyed naturally using traditional methods with over 200 color codes. We take on every bespoke carpet and dye it especially in accordance with a multitude of preordered color codes.



Farahan Carpet designers are able to bring any designs that customers may have in a carpet. A computer preview of customer design can be supplied before weaving to help him finalize colours or make any required changes that may be deemed necessary.


Farahan Carpet weavers create such patterns that anybody after watching will be surprised. They are the most important persons in Farahan Carpet and their ability always improves class of Farahan Carpet.


Final service

All produced items are washed using water and natural detergents. we never use chemical detergents for washing carpets. Sometimes we wash carpets twice or more time. it helps to remove the dust or moistures that remain between the piles. Also washing rugs in products with natural dyeing helps to cure them easily.
After washing them, the carpets spread in the sun because the sun helps make a harmony in colors and cause to be silky. Finally, the last detection and checking will be done before transporting.
