Colors include brown, navy, beige, gold and red. Story Behind the Art: The remnants can come from torn or damaged pieces of Persian Antique rugs that could no longer be used as one whole rug, so they are put together as a patchwork rug to preserve the good parts of these rugs. These remnants come from the rug weaving villages of Iran, but the rug is made by village weavers in Lahore, Pakistan. Inconsistencies in the rug and its design are the nature of this textile. Due to the handmade nature of our rugs, the size may vary from as advertised by 3-4 inches. Regular vacuuming and annual professional cleaning will keep your rug looking new for years to come. Herat Oriental has been providing beautiful, authentic, handmade rugs to Worldstock for over 10 years. Worldstock has given us the opportunity to create jobs for over 2,000 local village weavers, which helps them to greatly support their families. The majority of the weavers are women, who live in the villages of Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. As we grow with Worldstock, we are able to create more jobs for female weavers who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so. The community also thrives from rug weaving as the local farmers benefit from wool sales, and the local artisans create natural and vegetable dyes for the weavers to use in their designs.
