Lead Time

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.

Once the carpet is completed, it will be shipped directly to your door. Shipping prices will be included in the price of your order.

    THE PROCESS

    THE TECHNIQUE

    Afghanistan is one of the few places in the world which still produces high quality handwoven carpets. Every stage in the process is done entirely by hand, from spinning and dyeing the wool, weaving the carpet, to finally washing and cutting the carpet to an exquisite finish. Taking months to produce, these carpets are a true luxury product. 

    HOW IT WORKS

    You will develop the concept design for your carpet over a couple of sessions with our creative director. You can (a) just choose the elements you would like included (colours, core design elements, shapes etc), (b) create a very basic sketch or (c) develop a detailed powerpoint slide reflecting your design. 

    Once a design has been defined, you will be sent a sample of our carpet colour swatches for you to pick the colours of your choosing to perfectly match your home interior. 

    PRODUCTION

    Your design concept will be translated into a final technical design which will be shared with ISHKAR's team of weavers in northern Afghanistan to kickstart production. The carpets are woven entirely by hand by teams of up to three women, taking them approximately 3-4 months to weave, and 1 month to quality control, finish and ship. A standard size carpet might involve more than 1 million individual knots.


    MATERIAL

    The carpets are hand-knotted using Ghazni wool, a variety of wool unique to Afghanistan 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.
