This rug was handwoven in Pakistan's northern frontier by expert Afghan tribal weavers. Each rug is woven with hand-spun Persian wool and vegetable dyed. After nearly a year of weaving, the rug is washed and dried in the sun, giving it soft subdued tones. The rugs in this collection are inspired by the look and feel of 17th century Persian masterpieces. A rug pad is recommended to keep this securely in place.
