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 were created in Kashan county. Most of the older rugs that were woven in Kashan used imported wool. This particular rug was made by village weavers in Kashan using high quality wool from local villages and was woven in the 1960s. The process of making a rug includes cleaning, washing and dyeing the local 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, 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.
