Hand-Tufted Blue/Ivory Indoor Area Rug Herat Oriental

This beautiful contemporary rug was created in the Varanasi region of India, in the Bhadohi village. All washing, spinning and dyeing of the wool are done by the villagers in this area. The weaving technique is hand-tufted, which is a rug making process where weavers insert yarn into the rug backing with a hand held tufting gun to push and pull the threads through a pre-woven grid foundation. In a tufted rug, the tops of the loops are sheared to expose the ends of the threads for a softer, plusher pile. Herat Oriental
