Alasht is a village on the north side of Iran in the beautiful mountainous Mazandaran region. In the past, these fabrics were mostly used for curtains, blankets and as underlay to dry curd and wheat. EDELGRUND utilizes this old technique of weaving using 100% wool single layer hand-spun yarn to create a dense and durable high quality fabric that can be used as floor covering. These Kilims are weaved on special narrow looms (maximum of 1 meter wide) and artfully sewed together to create the desired size. All colors are 100% natural vegetable dyes.
