The design of this Aubusson rug originates from the French town of Aubusson, a small, picturesque town situated close to the mountains of the Massif Central. However, the design of this rug was copied and re-created by villagers in the Varanasi region of India. They do the entire process of shearing, washing, dyeing and weaving of the rugs.
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.
