Details

This rug is a unique piece of world art that will enhance your living space. Woven in the central Iranian province of Isfahan in the Bakhtiari village, these are among the most prized Persian rugs. The knot count per square inch for this rug is 150. The pile height is 0.25 inches. This rug is made of 100-percent wool . Colors include ivory, red, blue and salmon.

Story Behind the Art:
This particular rug was made in the 1960's by village weavers in Bakhtiari. The process of rug making includes cleaning, washing and dyeing the wool, and then weaving the rug with vegetable-dyed wool. The luxurious wool of the region and the expert craftsmanship of the rug weavers have made these rugs famous throughout the world. Today there are nearly 200 villages in the Char Mahal area, each with village weavers producing unique designs. They do the entire cleaning and weaving process and then bring the finished product to the market for the wholesalers and tourists. 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 raising sheep for wool, and the local artisans create natural and vegetable dyes for the weavers to use in their designs.
