  • Description

    The Iranian province Kerman produces highly distinctive carpets primarily in highly floral medallion or all over designs. During the 16th and 17th century, these rugs were made by village weavers for the royal family, commissioned by the king and a popular name for them became ‘Royal Kermans.’ Continuing that tradition, this particular rug was made by village weavers following traditional practices 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.
