Kashmir rugs have long been known for their beautiful and intricate designs, which are often characterized by the bright jewel tones used to weave them. The designs are floral in nature and woven with great skill. The style is unique to the region of India but developed over time and influence from other regions in the middle east, using motifs and designs brought to villages by trade and bartering. This rug is made of 100% natural silk.
Herat Oriental works with over 2,000 village weavers to create beautiful, authentic, handmade rugs. 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. 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.
