FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
General carpet information

How do I know that the colours of the carpets shown on my screen are accurately displayed?

All our photos and videos depict the carpet’s colors in the most accurate way possible. Due to the differences in computer monitors, color shades may vary slightly.

How accurate is the information regarding each carpet?

We strive to provide our customers with as much information as possible to make the purchase experience as convenient as possible.

Each and every carpet on the Carpet Avenue website has been carefully inspected by our purchasers during the buying process. The carpets are once again inspected with the taking of the photos and will undergo a third and final inspection during the packing stage.

If any information is found to be inaccurate, the customer will always be notified prior to shipment.

Do the measurements of the carpets include the fringes?


How do I calculate the knot density of a carpet?

The knot density of a carpet is the number of knots per square metre and can easily be calculated on any handknotted carpet you have. Simply chose an even spot on the backside of the carpet and count the number of knots along a 1 cm long line, both vertically and horizontally. Multiply the numbers with each other and then multiply your answer by 10,000 i.e. 3 knots horizontally x 4 knots vertically = 12 x 10,000 = 120,000 knots per square metre.

Why does my carpet shed/fluff?

It is not uncommon for a new carpet to shed, this is nothing to worry about and something that will gradually disappear within the first few weeks of use. The fluff you see is simply excess fibres that were trapped in the pile of the carpet during the cutting process that is now being released and surfacing to the top of the pile.

With some patience and regular vacuuming (1-2 times a week) in the direction of the pile, this will gradually disappear.

There is little use in trying to speed up this natural process – it will only cause extra, unnecessary wear to your carpet.

In Persian carpets you will notice that the shedding stops after a few vacuuming sessions, but in Indian carpets it might take a little longer.
