  • Description

    Joshegan has long been a weaving center in Iran, with highly coveted carpets produced for centuries in a continuous weaving tradition. These rugs are known for their unique patterns, with diamond shapes formed from traditional motifs in contrasting colors. This rug was hand-woven by village weavers in the 1960s. 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, Persia 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.
