Introducing the exquisite Afghani rug with a captivating design inspired by the Sauj Balagh style. This rug, originating from Afghanistan, showcases a tribal aesthetic that is sure to enhance any space. The background of the rug features a light blue hue, while the border boasts a refreshing green shade. Made from wool on cotton, this rug offers a delightful combination of comfort and durability.

Measuring at 2'8" X 16'9", this rug is the perfect size to adorn your floor with its stunning presence. It is meticulously handcrafted by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that yields longer staple, oily, and high-quality wool ideal for carpet weaving.

The raw Ghazni wool undergoes a meticulous process, being brought to the western side of Afghanistan around Herat, where it is hand carted and hand spun into carpet yarn. Utilizing traditional floor looms in their own homes, the artisans weave this rug, employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type. The warp and weft are made of cotton, while the pile consists of all wool, resulting in a double wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, ensuring the utmost durability.

The age-old tradition of using all-natural dye stuffs is followed in the creation of this rug, providing a timeless charm. Notably, the captivating blue color in this rug is derived from natural indigo dye stuffs. With a history dating back thousands of years, natural indigo dyes, known as indigofera tinctoria or true indigo, have been widely used across various cultures to produce vibrant blue hues.

With a remarkable knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug showcases the meticulous craftsmanship of the weavers. Through our calculations, we estimate that this rug boasts a remarkable total of 508,342 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the expertise and dedication embodied in its creation.

Immerse yourself in the allure of this Afghani rug, a masterpiece that seamlessly combines heritage and artistry. Its captivating design, quality craftsmanship, and enduring allure make it a true treasure for any rug enthusiast or collector.
