Introducing our exquisite Afghan rug, originating from the land of skilled Turkmen weavers and the Esari Subtribe. This traditional rug showcases the timeless beauty of Arabesque design, infused with a captivating background color reminiscent of luscious watermelon and accentuated by a regal navy border. With its vibrant red main color, this rug effortlessly captures attention and adds a touch of elegance to any space.

Crafted with utmost care and precision, this rug features a combination of wool on cotton, ensuring durability and longevity. The fine Ghazni wool, sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, possesses exceptional quality due to the mountainous terrain and longer staple length. After carefully hand-carting and spinning the wool in Herat, it is converted into carpet yarn, ready to grace the looms of the talented Afghan weavers.

Using a traditional floor loom in their own homes, these skilled artisans weave each rug with an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, producing a highly resilient and well-crafted masterpiece. The cotton warp and weft, combined with the densely double-wefted depressed warp weaving technique, contribute to the overall strength and durability of this handwoven gem.

This remarkable rug features centuries-old natural dyes made from madder roots, scientifically known as Rubia tinctorum. Madder root dyes have a rich history, having been cultivated and used for dyeing purposes across various cultures for centuries. With their vibrant warm and cool shades of red, orange, pink, and brown, these natural dyes infuse the rug with a captivating and unique character.

With a knots per square inch count of 80, this rug exemplifies the meticulous craftsmanship of the Afghan weavers. In fact, our calculations indicate that this rug boasts an impressive 1,260,568 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the dedication and skill of the artisans involved in its creation.

Welcome this authentic Afghan treasure into your home and experience the timeless beauty and durability it has to offer. Add a touch of elegance and heritage with this remarkable rug, a true masterpiece born from the rich weaving traditions of Afghanistan.
