Originating from the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, the wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep thriving in the region's mountainous terrain. Known for its superior quality, the Ghazni wool undergoes a meticulous process, from hand carding and spinning in Herat to being woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' homes. The use of an asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique and a double-wefted construction on a heavily packed depressed warp ensures exceptional durability, making this rug an investment that will last for generations.
The exceptional dyeing process of this rug involves the use of centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs. The captivating blue color is achieved through the utilization of natural indigo dye, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant. This historical dye, which has been cherished for thousands of years, lends a timeless beauty to the rug, evoking a sense of tranquility and sophistication.
With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162, this rug showcases the meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship that went into its creation. By calculating the KPSI, we estimate that there are a staggering 1,728,383 individually hand-tied knots in this remarkable piece.
