Chobi: 300 x 200cm: A magnificent quality, world-famous tribal hand-knotted rug from the nomad tribes of Afghanistan!
The rug is known as Chobi, and it is one of the best-known rug types produced in Afghanistan today. This particular listing is one of the best of its kind!

Chobi rugs use the best quality, painstakingly hand-spun Afghan wool, sourced from the central plains of Afghanistan. It incorporates vegetable dyes.
The world-class Chobi rug is best known for the "abrash effect" or "marbled effect". The technique involves spinning the wool yarn so tight by hand so that the dyes do not permeate the yarn evenly, creating an uneven, but beautiful natural-looking effect, making the rug a unique work of art.
