Our Peshawar rugs tend to have large geometric floral patterns and usually created using locally hand spun wool. The dyes are made entirely from hand gathered fruits, vegetables, roots, tree barks and dried fruit shells, making Peshawar rug the most labor-intensive of all of our carpets. Our natural dyeing techniques have been refined over the years to ensure a natural dye is long-lasting.
Deriving from northwestern Pakistan, these rugs use a lovely mix of Persian and Turkish designs and characteristics. Many of the patterns are floral and foliage and are famous for their designs to be spaced out on the field of the rugs. They are also known for their interesting array of soft and vibrant colors brought about by vegetable dyes. Peshawar rugs give a homely feel to a room making you feel right at home.
This is a fine example of an Overdyed area rug. These rugs demonstrate a process best described as 'The modern palette applied to classics'. It consists of an added step to the finishing process in which the rug is antique washed, sheared, and finally hand dyed in a full immersion bath of a chosen color. The effect is quite stunning, adding a vibrant overcast to the whole rug and blending seamlessly with the prior dyes.
