History Class: Chobi Rugs

Posted on Feb 16, 2017.

Our Chobi rugs have been around for centuries, but it’s only been within the past 20 years that these rugs have become popular again.  

They can be used in modern and transitional settings. 

The Afghani weavers introduced a new technique using both chemical and vegetable dyes on hand-spun wool.

These rugs typically have a golden hue with a rustic or weathered feel to them.

They come in mostly beige/ neutral colours with accent colours on the border.

The designs are usually based on antique patterns from Persian carpets.

The best Chobi rugs are made in Peshawar and are made from Ghazni wool – it is this fine wool that sets them apart. Ghazni wool comes from the Ghazni mountain range, located west of Kabul.

It is handspun, very fine, and offers unparalleled quality.
