The Alasht collection by Edelgrund is hand-woven by the local women of Alasht, a remote village on the north side of Iran located in the mountainous Mazandaran province. Each rug is entirely crafted with hand-spun pure new wool, using an ancient weaving technique typical of the region.
The highly detailed designs are reminiscent of abstract modernist paintings, constructed as a series of vertical panels. Individually woven by hand on narrow wooden looms, the panels are meticulously sewn together to create infinitely varied patterns. These dense flat-weave kilims are of the highest quality, ensuring their durability and longevity. Edelgrund’s signature hand-embroidered borders give the Alasht collection a refined elegance.
100% Hand-spun pure new wool, naturally dyed with vegetable dyes.
