Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug with a traditional design, adorned with delicate arabesque motifs. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically crafted by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, most of whom hail from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in its creation is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province, known for its mountainous terrain that produces longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool ideal for carpet weaving.

The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan near Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and hand spinning into fine carpet yarn. These beautiful rugs are woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, reflecting a cottage industry type of production.

With an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, this rug showcases its exceptional craftsmanship. The wool pile, woven with double wefted and heavily packed depressed warp, ensures the utmost durability, making it a long-lasting addition to any space.

Our Afghani rug boasts a heathered brown background that complements the intricately designed blue border. The combination of colors adds depth and character to this piece. Made from wool on cotton, this rug epitomizes the finest in quality and comfort.

Measuring 9'9" X 13'9", this rug is a substantial piece that will make a statement in any room. With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, we have calculated that this rug features an impressive total of 1,525,720 individually hand-tied knots, meticulously crafted by the skilled hands of the weavers.

This rug's traditional design, combined with its impeccable craftsmanship and durable construction, is a testament to the rich heritage of Afghan rug weaving. Own a piece of history and art with this breathtaking Afghani rug, perfect for adding warmth and elegance to your home or space.
