Inspired by an original Turkish Oushak rug, Zodiac is a modernised interpretation of the 15th Century Classic design. Woven in a soft colour palette of pinks, greens and golds, featuring a large 8-lobed central medallion with astrological symbols and characters integrated throughout the carpet. Zodiac has been intricately hand-knotted in Afghanistan in a 45/45 Persian knot quality, using fine, long-fibre Ghazni wool, natural vegetable and mineral dyes, and a variety of regional weaving techniques, all of which lend a unique character to Afghan made rugs. Created in in collaboration with Turquoise Mountain, which was founded in 2006 by the Price of Wales in order to protect and revive Afghanistan’s historic craft, artisan traditions and skills which dates back thousands of years. Bespoke sizes available upon request.
