Care

Basic care:

 • Vacuum rugs lightly
 • Avoid direct and prolonged sunlight exposure
 • Do not treat with stain products
 • If a stain occurs, act quickly preventing it from drying 

Tips for cleaning the most common household stains:

• The most important thing is to act quickly before the stain dries. 
• If the stain was caused by liquid, use paper towels to absorb. Work gently from the edges toward the center, so the problem area does not expand.
• For wine, coffee and tea, try to absorb as quickly as possible. Then apply a solution of warm water, detergent and white vinegar with a damp sponge. Wipe with clean cloth and let dry. If the stain persists, have it professionally cleaned.
• For spots of oil, chocolate, lipstick, nail polish, or ink: scrub – then soak – as much of the stain as possible with a white cloth or paper towel. Clean the rug professionally. Professional dry cleaning is always the best option for stubborn or dried stains.

Story

THE TECHNIQUE

Each carpet is hand-knotted, taking two weavers approximately three months to make. Every stage in the process is done entirely by hand, from spinning the wool, to dying the wool with dyes and weaving the carpet, to finally washing and cutting the carpet to an exquisite finish.

THE DESIGN

Designed by Clare Le Grelle for ISHKAR, this carpet is one of three contemporary designs that draw inspiration from Afghanistan's main arterial rivers, the Arghandab, the Hari, and the Amu Darya. Le Grelle notes, “These carpets depict a moment in the life of these majestic rivers, and are a tribute to the life they spread.”

Artisans

This piece is produced by master artisans in Afghanistan. Since the Taliban took over in August 2021, we have removed all identifying references of our partners for security reasons. Some of our partners were able to leave Afghanistan. For those who remain, their craft is critical to sustain their livelihoods at a time when the country is in financial collapse and in the grip of a humanitarian disaster. Every order we are able to make with our partners is more important now than ever before.

MOTTLED COLOUR

This carpet is woven using Ghazni wool, a variety of wool unique to Afghanistan. Ghazni wool is known for its luxuriant finish, as well as its unique way of absorbing colour which gives the carpets Abrash - the technical term used to describe the mottled effect given by each strand of wool's subtle variation of colour.
