Details

This rug is a unique piece of world art that will enhance your living space. They were woven in a very primitive way on flat wooden looms that lay on the ground, with 100-percent wool from their own sheep. All of the washing and the natural vegetable dying of the wool is done in their villages. The knot count per square inch for this rug is 180. The pile height is 0.25 inches. This rug is considered semi-antique because it was made in the 1960s.

Story Behind the Art:

Afghan Balouchi rugs are made in the villages of Zakini, Tiamani, and Kowdani, which are located in the province of Herat, Afghanistan. As a result of the past 30 years of war and foreign invasion of Afghanistan, most of the weavers in the villages have moved to the cities and are no longer weaving rugs. Therefore, you rarely see a newly woven Balouchi rug in the market but this particular rug was made by the weavers in the villages of Herat.
