  • Description

    Kashan is a historic city in the province of Isfahan. This region is famous for their rug weaving, which goes back to the Safavieh dynasty workshop rugs, that was created in Kashan county. Most of the older rugs that have been woven in Kashan by village weavers use the imported wool from Manchester UK and New Zealand for the production of their rugs. This particular rug was made by village weavers in Kashan. The process of rug making includes cleaning, washing and dyeing the wool, and then weaving the rug with vegetable-dyed wool.

    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.
