Preserving the beauty and longevity of your rug is straightforward with these essential care instructions:
• Professional Cleaning: Maintain your rug's brilliance with specialist cleaning services.
• Vacuuming: Safeguard your rug's integrity by using a suction vacuum only. Avoid rotating brushes, which could potentially damage the delicate fibers. Protect the fringes from the vacuum's reach.
• Spills and Stains: In case of spills, delicately blot them with a clean, absorbent cloth. Refrain from rubbing or resorting to harsh detergents.
• Protect: For added protection against movement and colour transfer, we recommend using rug hold underlay.
Hand Knotted - A hand-knotted rug, is also largely referred to as an oriental rug. A hand knotted rug is a rug that is made by hand on a specialised vertical frame loom. The process of hand knotting rugs goes back a few thousand years. Produced using ancient techniques, knotted rugs are famous for their boundless design and color variations. Depending on the type of knots, the size of the wool strands, and strength of the knots, the density and quality of a rug is determined. Individual knotted rugs can take months, sometimes even years, to make due to the precision and level of skill required.

Discover Khurjeen: Where Tradition and Contemporary Merge:
The term 'Khurjeen or Khorjeen' finds its roots in Dari/Farsi, translating to 'saddlebag.' This name is a nod to the intricate patterns and styles that adorn these rugs, reminiscent of the designs once seen on saddlebags. Khurjeen rugs are a testament to the artistry of the Turkmen and Hazara tribes in the central and northern provinces of Afghanistan.
Where Tradition Meets Innovation: The design and patterns of Khurjeen rugs draw inspiration from the saddlebags, known for their warm hues and straight stripes. What sets Khurjeen rugs apart is their unique blend of contemporary and traditional designs. These rugs are a canvas where history and modernity intertwine.
Crafted with dedication, Khurjeen rugs are woven with hand-spun wool yarns dyed exclusively with natural pigments like cochineal and indigo. These organic dyes infuse the rugs with a dramatic and vibrant appearance. Hand-knotted on a cotton warp base in Afghanistan, the rugs are then expertly finished in Pakistan, undergoing meticulous washing and trimming.

Just as with everything else in life, a rug begins with a good foundation. A rug foundation refers to the base or primary structure of the rug that provides support and stability to the entire piece. It serves as the canvas onto which the decorative elements of the rug are added. The rug foundation is crucial for the overall durability and longevity of the rug.
Warp: The warp is the vertical set of yarns or threads that run the length of the rug from the top to the bottom. These yarns are usually tightly stretched on a loom before the rug weaving process begins. The number and spacing of the warp threads determine the density and fineness of the rug’s construction.
Weft: The weft is the horizontal set of yarns or threads that run across the width of the rug, from side to side. These weft threads are woven over and under the warp threads to create the structure of the rug. Weft threads can be inserted using a shuttle or by hand, depending on the weaving technique.
The combination of warp and weft creates the foundation of the rug. Once the foundation is established, the decorative elements, such as the pile (in pile-woven rugs) or patterns (in flat-woven rugs), are added. In pile-woven rugs, the pile is formed by knotting or looping yarns around the warp threads, creating a raised surface. In flat-woven rugs, patterns are created by weaving different coloured weft threads in specific patterns.
The rug foundation, being the structural base, plays a crucial role in determining the overall strength, texture, and appearance of the finished rug. It is an essential aspect of rug making that contributes to the artistry and functionality of the final product.
