A new version of the oldest rug ever discovered......
The Pazyryk carpet
In a unique archaeological excavation in 1949, the exceptional Pazyryk
carpet was discovered among the ices of Pazyryk Valley, in Altai
Mountains in Siberia. The carpet was found in the grave of a Scythian
prince. Radiocarbon testing indicated that the Pazyryk carpet was woven
in the 5th century BC. This carpet is 283 by 200
cm (approximately 9.3 by 6.5 ft) and has 36 symmetrical knots per cm²
(232 per inch²). The advanced weaving technique used in the Pazyryk
carpet indicates a long history of evolution and experience in this art.
Pazyryk carpet is considered as the oldest carpet in the world.
