Sampling from our “Soft Color Collection”

Soft Color Collection

Our “Soft Color Collection” includes some of the most gorgeous carpets made today.  Many of these pieces come from northern Afghanistan and northern Pakistan and are hand-knotted by ethnic Turkmen and Hazara people.

Achieving this level of beauty is very labor intensive. After the knotting (a.k.a. “weaving) these carpets undergo an extreme finishing process.  First they are given a heavy soap & water wash followed by a deep shearing, then a beating/dusting and finally an “antiquing” process.  The entire process is repeated until it is determined the piece has the right look.  For the finer weaves in this collection, it can take close to a year to make a 9 x 12.  That employs 4 weavers and a handful of finishers.  That’s a lot of time but it’s well worth it! These beautiful works of art are meant to be used on the floor, walked on and enjoyed!
