These Pictorial rugs are woven and made by tribespeople based in central
and Northern Afghanistan, in the Bamyan and Kabul provinces.
Local Ghazni wool is used as this is durable, hard wearing and takes on
natural dyes very well. The wools are dyed using natural dyes (plants, root,
flowers, bark, fruit skins etc.) and then hand spun, prior to knotting. Actual
examples of dye matter include plants such as walnut, pomegranate, root
plants and saffron.
The design and patterns of this type of rug are often taken from what the
tribal weavers would be able to see in their own habitat – plants, animals,
trees and water. The rugs are woven by Turkmen and Hazara tribespeople.
Each one is unique, much like an original painting, with each rug having
similar characteristics, but a unique pattern.
The wools used are hand spun and dyed using natural dyes such as
cochineal and indigo, typically incorporating deep, warm colours which add
to their dramatic and vibrant appearance.
The wool is then hand knotted onto a cotton warp (foundation) and the
finished rugs are then taken to Pakistan where they are expertly finished,
including washing and trimming, before being exported all over the world.
Hand knotted onto a cotton foundation using 100% new hand spun wool dyed with natural dyes for the pile.
This fine rug measures 5 feet 9 inches long by 4 feet 1 inch wide. ( 1.75 x 1.24 metres ).
