The Pazyryk Rug reproduction from Pakistan captivates our imagination because of its sophistication of weave, color and design and the fact that the original design is the oldest rug in existence. Discovered in 1949 on the steppes of Mongolia in a Scythians Prince’s tomb, the Pazyryk Rug along with other textiles had been frozen for over 2500 years.
The Pazyryk Rug, which can be viewed at The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, measures 6’x6’7” and was hand-knotted with 278 Turkish knots per square inch, using hand-carded and hand-spun wool.
This textile had been dyed with plant and insect dyes from the Mongolian steppes. This masterpiece gives us a glimpse of the enduring meaning and purpose that textiles had to our ancestors. Over the years, we have been looking for the best reproductions and this is probably one of the finest that's on the market.

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.
