The process of creating fabric with the vertical loom starts by making the warp from long cotton yarns. Afterwards, wool yarn is weaved through the warp to create the carpet; finally, the fabric is made more compact and stronger by pounding. All raw materials used are natural and usually home-made by locals in their own yards. The wool is dyed with natural pigments extracted from plants (stems of pepper for green, walnut leaves for brown, onion leaves for beige), as well as with industrial paints (usually for shades of red and black). Our recommendation is to wash it by hand using lukewarm water with some (preferably liquid) detergent for delicates. Dry it away from harsh sunlight and other artificial heaters.
