Introducing an exquisite Afghani Agra rug, boasting a traditional design that will add elegance and charm to any space. The captivating olive background beautifully complements the beige border, creating a harmonious color palette. This rug is skillfully handcrafted with wool on cotton, blending durability with softness.
In terms of origin, this rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically from the Ghazni Province in the southeast. The region's mountainous terrain produces high-quality, long-staple wool, creating an ideal material for carpet weaving. The wool is ethically sourced from local sheep and brought to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is hand-carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn by skilled Turkmen weavers.
This rug showcases the craftsmanship of these weavers, who utilize traditional floor looms in their own homes and cottage industry setups. The weaving technique employed is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot, further enhancing the rug's authenticity and craftsmanship. The double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique ensures exceptional durability, making this rug a long-lasting investment.
As for the dyeing process, this rug features centuries-old all-natural dyes, infusing each fiber with rich and lasting colors. The care and attention to detail put into the creation of this rug are truly remarkable.
Additionally, this Afghani Agra rug measures 2 '6 "x 18'8 ", with a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. Based on this KPSI, we have calculated that this rug possesses an astounding 531,098 individually hand-tied knots.
