Introducing the remarkable Afghan Village design rug from Afghanistan. This tribal-style rug showcases a captivating sky blue background, beautifully complemented by a beige border. Crafted with care, this rug features a cotton warp and weft, with a wool pile making it soft and comfortable to walk on. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for its high-quality and longer staple oily wool.

The rug is meticulously woven by skilled Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. These talented artisans employ the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, creating a durable and enduring piece. The weaving takes place in the weavers' own homes or cottage industries, using traditional floor looms. This rug boasts a double weft and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, ensuring its longevity and robustness.

To add to its allure, this rug utilizes natural indigo dye stuffs to achieve its gorgeous blue color. Indigo, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, is one of the oldest known dyes used by humans. Its history spans thousands of years and has been cherished across various cultures for its vibrant blue hues.

With a knots per square inch measurement of 80, this rug showcases the intricacy and precision of its craftsmanship. In total, it contains an impressive 30,347 individually hand-tied knots, indicative of the time and effort dedicated to creating this masterpiece.

Enhance your space with the timeless beauty and cultural heritage of this Afghan Village design rug. Immerse yourself in its rich history and craftsmanship, making it a treasured addition to any home.
