A superb Afghanistan Belouch, hand-knotted in the remote province of Kabul. The soft lustrous wool and brilliant colours are all typical of the Belouch weaving. The weaver shows creative sensibility in the use of a multitude of natural dyes. In general, tribal weavers are particularly fond of patterns that are simple and pleasing to the eye, and with a rhythm of its own.

How to care for your rug:

  • Vacuum regularly to prevent dirt from the surface
  • If spills occur, do not rub or spread the stain. Simply blot the affected area with a dry cloth or a tissue to absorb the stain and work towards the stain.
  • Use warm water diluted in clear white vinegar to manage the dyes
  • It's recommended that you rotate the rug (not too often) to equalize the surface wear
  • If heavy furniture is placed over the rug, use a protector to avoid damaging the surface of the rug.
  • If your carpet is of hand-knotted wool, do not worry about furniture indents, simple vacuuming against the pile will prop up the surface once again. 
  • Professional cleaning: Every year, depending on the usage of the rug
  • Surface shedding: Non natural materials will not shed. Hand Knotted rugs do not shed.
