The exquisite use of color, the fabulous patterns, the outstanding materials and the unique construction techniques make antique Senneh rugs some of the finest produced in Persian Kurdistan homes rather than in the rug weaving shops. Senneh has a long history of carpet production before commercial companies and exporters entered the market. The carpets of Senneh are unique in their single-weft construction and use of interlaced warps. Even the yarns used in Senneh rugs are of the finest quality and are spun very tightly. The tightly knotted structure produces a very fine and durable surface that is distinguished by a rough, bumpy back.
The village of Senneh, also called Sanandaj, is located in the unofficial province of Iranian Kurdistan. Sennah is also a regional dialect. For these reasons, Senneh carpets are often attributed to Kurdish weavers. Many of the best antique Senneh rugs feature traditional patterns, such as the all over Gol-Farang which have been used in the area for centuries. Antique Senneh carpets are tastefully colored, beautifully composed relics of an era represented by unmatched quality and craftsmanship that is coveted today.
