Story Behind the Art:
Afghan Balouchi rugs are made in the villages of Zakini, Tiamani and Kowdani, which are located in the province of Herat, Afghanistan. As a result of the past 30 years of war and foreign invasion of Afghanistan, most of these weavers in the villages have moved to the cities and are no longer weaving rugs. Therefore, you rarely see a newly woven Balouchi rug in the market. This semi-antique rug was made in the second half of the 20th century, by the women weavers in the villages of Herat. They were woven in a very primitive way on flat wooden looms that lay on the ground, with 100 percent wool from their own sheep. They did the washing and the natural vegetable dying of the wool in their villages.
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.
Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.
All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.
Please keep in mind that new wool rugs may initially shed and have a natural capacity to shed for several months after purchase. This is normal due to the nature of construction of most wool rugs and not a defect. Click here to view our Wool Rug Care Guide.
