One of the most popular rug designs from Afghanistan is called Khal Mohammadi. They are all handmade by Turkomans in the north of Afghanistan, near Ghazni which is the capital for all handmade rugs in the country. The primary natural dyes used for the wools are dark red, with recurring ‘gul’ motifs (elephant-like pattern) and octagonal motifs (eight shaped) featuring often with curvilinear flowers in black, dark blue, ochre, and beige.
This rug is strongly hand-knotted in rich red madder coloured wool with minimal use of other colours. Used with vegetable dyes, the wool used on this rug is from Ghazni, which is known for producing some of the softest and durable wool in the Middle East.
Khal Mohammadi rugs are meant to last for a lifetime, and the more use it sees, the softer, and especially shinier they become, hence why vintage ones are so sought after all over the world. This specific one is brand new but already has the softness and shinies of a vintage rug.
Very easy to clean: with a vacuum cleaner or a simple shampoo + water for any stains.
