Chobi Contemporary: 285 x 180cm: A rug where centuries old Afghan tribal rug-weaving expertise meets a contemporary artistic expression!
The rug combines unique rug making skills with painstakingly hand-spun Afghan wool and vegetable dyes to create a truly one-off hand-knotted rug.
This most beautiful rug is woven within the Afghan Chobi category, a highly popular and one of the best-known rug types produced in the world today.
This rug enjoys what is known as 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.
