This rug is a unique piece of world art that will enhance your living space. The design of this rug originates from Antique Turkish Oushak rugs which are extremely rare and expensive. The Afghan weavers have been able to re-create these beautiful rugs which resemble similarities to the originals, with high quality hand-spun wool and pure vegetable dyes. The knot count per square inch for this rug is 180. The pile height is 0.25 inches . Colors include red, tan, and olive.

Story Behind the Art:
Afghan Vegetable Dye Oushak designs are made in the Northern part of Afghanistan by Turkoman weavers, as well as central Afghanistan by Hazara weavers. Those vegetable dyes most commonly used are madder, the root of a spindly bush which grows abundantly in many carpet-producing area which is used to create a red color. Walnut peel is used for dark brown, pomegranate peel for light brown, and sparak which is a wild flower from the steppes, used for yellow. Due to the handmade nature of our rugs, the size may vary from as advertised by 3-4 inches. Regular vacuuming and annual professional cleaning will keep your rug looking new for years to come. Herat Oriental has been providing beautiful, authentic, handmade rugs to Worldstock for over 10 years. Worldstock has given us the opportunity to create jobs for over 2,000 local village weavers, which helps them to greatly support their families. The majority of the weavers are women, who live in the villages of Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. As we grow with Worldstock, we are able to create more jobs for female weavers who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so. The community also thrives from rug weaving as the local farmers benefit from wool sales, and the local artisans create natural and vegetable dyes for the weavers to use in their designs.
