Centuries have passed since Isfahan became one of the most important rug weaving centers in Persia. The city is the center of the Isfahan province and is located in a vast region of Central Iran. Isfahan designers have been influenced by the motifs of ceramic works and historical buildings. Rugs made by Isfahan village weavers feature a variety of fascinating themes such as floral designs, gardens full of animals, and intricate medallions. This particular rug was made in the 1960’s by village weavers in Isfahan. 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.
