These Pictorial rugs are woven and made by Turkmen and Hazara
tribespeople based in central and Northern Afghanistan, in the Bamyan and
Kabul provinces.
The design and patterns of this type of rug are taken from what the tribal
weavers would be able to see in their habitat – trees, plants and animals,
with each living item stylised rather than being accurately depicted. Each
rug is much like an original painting, with each one having similar
characteristics, but a unique pattern.
Local Ghazni wool is used for the pile, 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, saffron, 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.
100% new hand spun wool pile.This stunning rug measures 8 feet 1 inch long by 5 feet 9 inches wide. ( 2.47 x 1.76 metres ).
