ITEM#: 26177378This rug is a unique piece of world art that will enhance your living space. Kashan is a historic city in the province of Isfahan. This region is famous for their rug weaving, which goes back to the Safavieh dynasty workshop rugs, that was created in Kashan county. This rug is 100-percent wool. The pile height is 0.25 inches. The knot count for this rug is 160 knots per square inch . Colors include red, navy, ivory, blue, gold, green and salmon.
Story Behind the Art:
Most of the older rugs that have been woven in Kashan by village weavers use the imported wool from Manchester UK and New Zealand for the production of their rugs. This particular rug was made by village weavers in Kashan. The process of rug making includes cleaning, washing and dyeing the wool, and then weaving the rug with vegetable-dyed wool. 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, Iran 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.
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.
