Style: Chobi rugs are a classic within Traditional Rugs. They have a reputation for being durable, reliable and great quality. These rugs are made to last generations.
The name 'Chobi' itself translates to 'colour like wood' in Farsi. This name is appropriate as the most common colours used in Chobi rugs are colours that can 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 overall is much more luxurious.
This rug has been woven in South Afghanistan, more specifically Herat. This rug can also be considered as a Balouch, but it's important to know that the quality is much higher than typical tribal Balouch rugs. The knots are tight and the wool is high quality, making it perfect for high traffic areas.
