If you are buying a rug for the first time (or buying one after doing some research for the first time), you have probably discovered that there are a wide variety of rug styles and types. From Persian to Beljik rugs, there is a rug that fits everyone’s needs. This is the fourth post in a series of five posts, each featuring a different style. This post will introduce you to the Chobi rug.
Chobi rugs are a type of Persian rug. It is handmade in Afghanistan, near the Pakistan border. They were developed in response to the North American style, which favored more muted colors than the traditional bold, rich colors of the Persian rugs. They are hand knotted with spun wool, using vertical looms, and are made to last. They are passed down from generation to generation.
Chobi rugs have a consistent design pattern: a border containing floral motifs, and the central field of the rug features a larger floral pattern. As noted above, the colors used are more muted—soft, warm reds, browns and greens mixes with beige or cream colors.
