For customers just starting out in the hand-knotted market, Afghan rugs are a great introduction to the rug world. Made in Afghanistan, these rugs remain significantly tied to their tribal roots as they reinvent typical patterns and colours of their area. With so many tribal groups in Afghanistan, each rug has its own designs and weaving techniques, making it difficult to pin down a single distinct style. Afghan rugs are truly unique, and with so many styles available, there is sure to be something to match your taste.
A Choubi rug's pile is hand-spun wool, and the dyes used are natural. Choubi's are woven on a strong cotton warp and weft and are suited for dining and formal rooms. The wool has a natural glow and a colour variation depending on the angle they are viewed.
The word "choubi" comes from the Farsi word "chob", which means wood, referring to the source of the Choubi rugs' natural dyes; fruits, vegetables, roots, tree bark, and dried shells. Because of the natural dye used, Choubi rugs are known for their soft, muted colours that range from browns to coppers and maroons and even to unusual blues and greens. Choubi rugs tend to have large geometric floral patterns and have a main characteristic of an abrash effect, or marbled effect, based on the fine nature of the hand-spun wool.
