Herat Oriental

Herat Oriental T149/5203 Indo Tibetan Hand-Tufted Wool Rug, 8 by 11-Feet, Gold

Handmade in China, a gorgeous wool area rug will add style to your home. This rug was created entirely in the Shandong province of China, employing villagers to make stunning carpets. The process involves local natural materials worked into modern or traditional patterns. 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. Regular vacuuming and annual professional cleaning will keep your rug looking new for years to come. Herat Oriental has been creating beautiful, authentic, handmade rugs for over 10 years. We work with villages around the world and have created jobs for over 2,000 traditional weavers, which helps them to greatly support their families. The majority of the weavers are women who live in the villages of Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. As our company grows, we are able to create more jobs for female weavers who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so. The community also thrives from rug weaving as the local farmers benefit from wool sales, and the local artisans create natural and vegetable dyes for the weavers to use in their designs.
