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.
