  • Description

    Tabriz rugs are among the most beautiful and legendary carpets ever made, known for their elegant designs. Most commonly a Tabriz carpet has an intricate all-over floral pattern or has a large central medallion. The design of this rug was copied and re-created in the Jodhpur region of India, by Jaipur village weavers who have accented the beautiful motifs of the Tabriz design with silk. These rugs are virtually identical in design, workmanship and authenticity as the originals. The process of making a rug includes cleaning, washing and dyeing the wool which is sourced from local villages.

    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.
