Chobi rugs are traditionally produced in many regions of Pakistan. The word "chobi" is from the Farsi word "chob" which means wood, referring to the source of its natural dyes. Our Chobis tend to have large geometric floral patterns. They are all hand-knotted with hand-spun wool spun primarily by a drop spindle. Their natural dyes are made entirely from hand-gathered fruits, vegetables, roots, tree barks and dried shells, making Chobis the most labor-intensive of all of our tribal carpets.
Natural Dye Chobis are renowned for their lanolin-rich luster and stunning natural coloring. Their colors range from soft muted tans and browns to rich coppers, deep maroons, and sage greens. Our natural dyeing techniques have been refined over the years to ensure a natural dye that is steadfast, fade-proof and long-lasting.
- Knot count: Over 100 knots per square inch
- Colors in each rug: 4-7 naturally-dyed colors
- Composition: 100% hand-spun wool on a cotton warp and weft.
- Type of knot: Senna
- Production: A 9'x12' rug could be completed in 12–14 months, the same time it takes to produce a 9'x12' Persian however with a Chobi, over 70% of the labor done on these rugs happens before the rug actually reaches the loom, from spinning the wool by drop spindle to hand-gathering and producing the seasonal natural dyes.
