Story Behind the Art:

Afghan Balouchi rugs are made in the Zakini, Tiamani and Kowdani villages located in the province of Herat, Afghanistan. As a result of 30 years of war and foreign invasion, many weavers moved to the cities, no longer able to weave rugs making newly woven Balouchi rugs a rare commodity in the market. This semi-antique rug was made in the last half of the 20th century by women weavers in Herat villages. Woven traditionally on flat wooden looms on the ground using 100-percent wool from their own sheep, these rugs were washed and natural vegetable dyed.
