For generations, Kharad rugs were woven from camel, goat, and sheep wool on traditional nomadic looms which could be easily set up, taken down, and moved throughout the desert on the backs of animals.  The rugs’ geometric patterns and motifs are inspired from the desert environment. Fine detailing is not possible due to the coarse yarn used for weaving, and so the designs contain a bold geometric quality. The wool is dyed with natural dyes, though artisans are beginning to use locally available chemical dyes as well.
