Before written history, mankind was using wool to make life better and comfortable. Although scientists have tried many times to make a synthetic product with all of the qualities of wool, they have never succeeded. Nothing compares with the comfort, resilience, versatility, and health benefits of pure wool. Hypoallergenic - Wool is resistant to bacteria, mold, and mildew, which trigger reactions in some people. Temperature controlled - Wool is warm in cool weather, cool when it's warm. Naturally fire retardant - Wool extinguishes itself when touched to a flame. It won't continue to burn. Because of this fact, firemen wear wool clothing. Dust mite repellant - Dust mites need moisture to survive. Wool evaporates moisture quickly and is inhospitable to dust mites.

We have made every effort to display the colors of our rugs as accurate as possible. But the colors may vary depending on your monitor type and the illumination levels of your space.
WASHING AND FINISHING
The entire rug is put throught the process called binding and trimming, then it is washed and dried several times for vibrancy and sheen. The rug is laid flat on the ground, then fresh water is poured over it. The rug washers then use a wood plank, sharpened on one edge, to force the water through the rug pile. This removes impurities picked up during the creation process.
No backing is needed for a hand-knotted rug. The final steps include quality inspection of size, pile height and shearing. It is important to notice that each weaver or group of weavers adds personality to the new rug, no two rugs are ever the same and all of our handmade rugs are one-of-a-kind.
