Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug with a traditional Arabesque design. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically from the Ghazni Province in the southeast. The weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, skillfully handcraft each piece using wool obtained from sheep in the Ghazni Province. The mountainous terrain of this region naturally yields longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool, perfect for carpet weaving.

The raw Ghazni wool is transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is meticulously hand carted and spun into carpet yarn. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms within the weavers' homes, reflecting a cottage industry type of production. Employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique, the weavers create a unique and durable rug.

Crafted with a wool pile and a cotton warp and weft, this rug showcases double wefted and heavily packed depressed warp weaving, ensuring exceptional durability. The authentic and timeless design is complemented by an ivory background and a captivating blue border, all dyed with centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs.

Each knot has been expertly tied by hand, resulting in a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. Taking this into account, our meticulous calculations reveal that this rug boasts 274,953 individually hand-tied knots in total. The desirable size of this rug measures 4'1" x 5'11", making it a versatile piece that can enhance any living space.

Immerse yourself in the rich history and skilled artistry behind this Afghani rug. With its exquisite design, finest quality materials, and timeless craftsmanship, this rug is a true testament to the cultural heritage and artistic traditions of Afghanistan. Bring a touch of elegance and sophistication to your home with this remarkable piece of art.
