This is one of Warrug.com's project empowerment rugs. In the early 2000's we identified weavers of skill and promise and staked them to build looms and workshop of their own. This rug is one example of this production. These rugs were woven in Pakistan, by Afghan refugees. This rug was copied from thisrug #876. I suspect it was a junior weaver's first attempt at a detailed portrait rug. The border is not the signature motif of the best weaver of this group.
Wool: Excellent. Soft, probably mill spun and natural dyed. The wool is dense and lustrous. Sheen: Very good especially for new and unused rug Handle: Stiff typical of Turkomen rugs. Selvedge: 6 cords blue interlaced over terminal warps.
Fringe: Short weft faced plain weave kilim end that shows the warp depression, small overhand knots, then 3 inches fringe Pile: 5 millimetersWarp: white cottonWeft: 2 cords white
Warp Depression:Full warp depression, a.k.a. double knotted
