Product description

Product code: 64760308

A selection of truly unique and totally individual traditional hand-knotted rugs, this range from Gooch Oriental showcases rugs created by different artisans across town and village locations across the world, including traditional Persian creations. Each piece is carefully selected by the Gooch Oriental team to ensure it's authenticity, quality and finish. Each one is knotted by hand, an intricate process using traditional hand knotting techniques. As such, no two pieces are the same, meaning you can add an authentic and unique piece of crafted design into your home, whilst supporting this heritage industy.

The Afghan Ziegler style, or Chobi style, is mainly made by Turkmen tribes of Afghanistan settled in the northern provinces of Faryab, Jawozjan, and Mazar-e-Sharif. The wool used is hand spun and then dyed using natural vegetable dyes before being hand knotted using a unique technique of twisting the yarn twice before double knotting. The rugs are then transported to Pakistan where they are expertly finished including washing and trimming using the traditional methods.

The word "Chobi" translates from traditional Afghan language Dari to mean ‘wood’, referring to the natural colours used in the designs. Within the last 30 years Ziegler designs have been rediscovered and old ideas revived. The wool used is from the central Ghazni province of Afghanistan.

Knot count per 1sqm – Approx 140000 + knots giving a low-density pile.

About your new rug

  • We recommend John Lewis & Partners Rug Hold Underlay. It prevents your rug from moving underfoot and protects against colour transfer to the floor
  • Natural fibres may shed. This will reduce over time, and shouldn’t affect your rug’s lifespan or performance
  • When vacuuming your rug, use suction only. Rotating brushes may damage the fibres
  • Blot any spills with a clean, dry cloth. Do not rub or use harsh detergents.
  • Textile backed
