The new rug shipment just arrived and we are amazed. Bunyaad rug artisans in Pakistan keep surprising us over and over again.
You would think that we’d know what to expect when we open the bales. Craftsmanship and quality of wool and colors are always high. Yet this newest shipment shows again the incredible artistry of the rug artisans we work with.
Fair Trade practices allow the artisans to use their creativity and skills and constantly come up with new designs. New color schemes are explored and combined into designs that make you realize that each person involved in the rug making is an artisan.
Bold and Vivacious Colors—Not Your Grandma’s Persian
Our Chobis Have the Blues
The range of blue hues is quite extensive even when made with all hand-gathered natural dyes. From indigo to baby blue, gray blue, cornflower blue and even darker shades that turn steel gray depending on how the light reflects across the pile. Find the blue of your choice either in a monochromatic palette or go with a more vibrant color combination. Chobis offer you both!
A Painting or A Rug?
Look at the details! Turning a painting into a rug design requires even more skill and expertise because you have to create a full size rug graph for a rug that also has a much higher knot count. Most of our pictorial rugs have at least 800 knots per square inch to bring out the details in the painting.
