Introducing a magnificent rug from Afghanistan, specifically crafted by ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. This exquisite piece showcases the rich heritage of Afghan village design, characterized by a tribal style that exudes cultural authenticity. The background is adorned with a deep indigo hue, beautifully contrasting against the border's soothing beige tones.

Meticulously fashioned using traditional techniques, this rug features a wool pile on a cotton warp and weft, ensuring both comfort and durability. The wool itself is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, renowned for its mountainous terrain, which naturally produces longer staple oily wool of superior quality for carpet weaving. The process begins with raw Ghazni wool being transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn before being woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes.

Employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug is a testament to the centuries-old weaving techniques passed down through generations. Its double wefted construction, with a heavily packed and depressed warp, adds to its exceptional durability, ensuring that it will endure the test of time.

One of the most remarkable features of this rug is its use of all-natural dye stuffs. The captivating blue hues are derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, known as indigofera tinctoria or true indigo. This plant has been utilized for thousands of years, making it one of the oldest known dyes in human history. Its application in various cultures around the world has resulted in vibrant blue shades that captivate the eye.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, we can confidently state that this rug encompasses 27,818 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the incredible craftsmanship and attention to detail dedicated to its creation.

Immerse yourself in the captivating beauty of this Afghan masterpiece, a testament to the skill and dedication of its weavers. Embrace the ancient traditions and vibrant history that radiate from every fiber of this awe-inspiring rug.
