Style: Chobi rugs are a classic within Traditional Rugs. They have a reputation for being durable, reliable and of excellent quality.
The name 'Chobi' itself translates to 'colour like wood' in Farsi. Therefore, this name is appropriate as the most common colours used in Chobi rugs are colours found in different types of wood.
The hand-spun wool is a staple in high quality, fine Chobi Rugs as it adds beautiful characteristics that machine-spun wool isn't able to produce. The wool becomes much more durable, velvet-like and almost silky to touch. It adds a glow to the rug, and the finish is much more luxurious.
Mamluk is the name of the distinctive pattern on this rug. Mamluk rugs are very complex in design and always feature incredibly detailed medallions. Mamluk rugs originated from Egypt during the thirteenth century and continue to be in production.
