Description

Details:

This rug is a unique piece of world art that will enhance your living space. The weavers of the Mahal design use the asymmetrical or Persian knot, giving their rugs exceptional softness and flexibility. The knot count per square inch for this rug is 150. This rug is made of 100-percent wool pile, and a cotton foundation. The pile height is 0.5 inches. This Mahal area rug is hand-tufted with a floral pattern in shades of black, beige, green, gold, red, blue, and brown.

Story Behind the Art:
The design of this rug originates from the Iranian city of Mahal, however this rug was re-created in the Varanasi region of India, in the Bhadohi village. The weaving technique is hand-tufted, which is a rug making process where weavers insert yarn into the rug backing with a hand held tufting gun to push and pull the threads through a pre-woven grid foundation. In a tufted rug, the tops of the loops are sheared to expose the ends of the threads for a softer, plusher pile. Natural vegetable dyes are used to give the rugs their rich colors. Regular vacuuming and annual professional cleaning will keep your rug looking new for years to come. The majority of the weavers are women, who live in the villages of Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. As we grow, 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.

The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
