Hand knotted pile tribal rug made with all natural dyes and handspun wool. This rug was woven in a project whose goal is to pay homage to the art of the traditional Ersari Turkmen carpet. The principle dye used in this rug is madder root. The rich earthy red brown red hues from this dye are emblematic of the Ersari people. All wool construction (with wool pile on a wool foundation) and a sturdy 90kpsi weave. These carpets develop an incredible sheen and soft handle as they age. This weaving project has produced some of my all-time favorite tribal rugs. Woven In participation with Barakat; helping communities thrive through providing education in rug weaving countries.
