This hand knotted pile rug is made using all handspun wool. This rug is woven with a textured weave of around 40kpi. 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. This modern rug was a unique, colorful and whimsical design.
