Square carpets

Rectangular | Square | Oval | Round | Runners

A square carpet is ideal for framing furnishings.

A square carpet from Mashad in Iran.
Squared carpets are very rare. The ones found in the market today are seldom totally squared - there is often a small deviation since they are handmade carpets.
 
These carpets are perfectly suitable in square rooms and also to frame, for example a group of sofas in a larger room or under a table.
 
Example of squared carpets include those from Mashad, Sarough and Bidjar.
