How are your carpet sizes are measured?

All our size measurements relate to the pile area only of knotted pile carpets, and to the woven area of kelims, soumacs and other flatweaves, and also of tapestries.

This means that the sizes given for knotted pile carpets do not include any kelim end webs, or any side finishes.

All items are measured along their vertical and horizontal central axes, as follows:

How Length is measured:

(Fringes and other end finishes are not included in our length measurements)

How Width is measured:

(Edge selvages or other side finishes are not included in our width measurements)

Also note, length is always first in our published sizes, with width second.
