Chobi Oriental Rugs and Carpets

Chobi (sometimes spelled chobee) rugs and carpets are sometimes also referred to as peshawar rugs.  "Chobi," which in a loose translation means "of wood" or of natural colors, tells a good deal about the look of these rugs as they often appear earthy in color tone.

 

The Chobi style is highly characterised by a thinly sheered pile, large print designs, and most predominant, their antique ivory and sometimes golden tones.  It is fairly unusual for a Chobi carpet to have more than 8 distinct colors, and the general overtone has a "washed-out" or sometimes even faded appearance.  Although Chobi often feature subtle designs and colors, there are many which feature bold colors as well.  More often than not, chobi rugs are woven in allover designs, although there are both repeat patterns and medallions which are woven in less volume.

Part of the popularity of Chobi rugs may be attributed to the process of tea-washing which was in high demand in the early 1990's going forward.  This technique gives new rugs an antiqued appearance through a special treatment which gives rugs a golden patina.  While Chobi rugs are not necessarily subject to the tea wash process, they often have a similar tone.

 

Very nice examples of Chobi rugs are woven with Gazni wool, which is a very nice grade of wool known for both its durability and natural luster.  Chobi carpets primarily come from two different regions, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

 

(Pronounced Choe-bee)

 

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.
