The thick yarn used produces a soft and luxurious medium weight rug that will last 100 years. Father and sons from a fifth generation family of artisans weave these rugs by hand using the traditional kharad weaving technique. Kharad weavers use a basic horizontal loom because it is easy to set up and dismantle, fitting their nomadic lifestyle. The black and white colors are the natural shades of the goat and sheep wool used, 100% undyed and untreated. The miri braid on each end is a finishing technique distinctive of this region and a signature feature of this rug.
Due to the nature of handmade goods, slight variations will occur.
