This hand knotted pile rug is made using 100% natural dyes and handspun wool. This rug is woven with around 90kpi. The striking all-over palmettes design in this rug was inspired by an antique NW Persian rug. Weaving takes place in the northern areas of Afghanistan, the home of the Turkmen people. Carpet weaving is perhaps the most essential and revered cultural activity for Turkmen; something which traditionally all women take part in. The art of weaving is reverently passed on from mother to daughter with the weaving of these rugs taking place in individual family homes. FREE Shipping and Easy Returns.
