Richard Rothstein & Co. Oriental Rug Weaving Video
(Shot by Richard with his weavers in Baku, Azerbaijan)
Please note: if you are unable to view the video here, it is also available on YouTube. In fact, it is the #1 Oriental Rug Video on their site..
This high-quality rug weaving video, shot by me in Azerbaijan, showcases the production of our museum-quality Oriental rugs, Persian rugs, and Caucasian rugs -- including custom Oriental rugs.
Highlights include weaving, dyeing (all-natural dyes), following of the cartoon (rug plot/graph), setting up of the loom, running of the warps and wefts, washing, finishing of the fringe, and interviews with the weavers.
Among the rugs shown are Kazak rugs, Shirvan rugs, Kuba rugs, Karabagh rugs, prayer rugs, Serapi rugs, and Tabriz rugs.
As is the case with all Richard Rothstein & Co. new Oriental rugs, these rugs are entirely handmade and hand woven with pure, hand-spun wool and all-natural dyes by our master weavers -- all of whom are adult women who learned the art of weaving from their sisters, mothers, and grandmothers.
They are all highly skilled artisans who earn more than their local teacher or policeman.
