Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, crafted with artistic precision and showcasing an elegant Arabesque design. This rug originates from the Esari Subtribe, primarily woven by skilled Turkmen weavers. The wool used in this masterpiece comes from sheep residing in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for its mountainous terrain that yields longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool.
To prepare the wool for weaving, it is carefully transported to Herat, located on the western side of Afghanistan. Here, it undergoes the delicate process of hand carding and hand spinning, transforming it into carpet yarn of exceptional quality. The rug is woven on traditional floor looms, with local artisans proficiently crafting each knot in their own homes or through cottage industry production methods.
Featuring an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, this rug showcases a wool pile that exudes unparalleled elegance. Its double wefting and heavily packed depressed warp weaving contribute to its remarkable durability, ensuring it withstands the test of time.
One of the distinguishing features of this rug lies in its color palette. Set against a stunning silver background, the intricate Arabesque design is accentuated by a teal border, creating a captivating contrast. The main color theme of this rug is a sophisticated shade of grey, adding a touch of timeless elegance to any space.
This rug is 3'10" x 6'3" in size, making it ideal for various living areas or as a statement piece in a room of your choice. Its knots per square inch measure an impressive 162, reflecting the impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail invested in its creation. In fact, we have calculated that this meticulously handcrafted rug comprises a total of 556,447 individual knots.
Immerse yourself in the rich history and cultural significance of this rug, as it showcases centuries-old techniques and employs all-natural dye stuffs for its vibrant colors. This stunning piece is a testament to the skilled craftsmanship and dedication of the Afghan weavers, offering a unique and timeless addition to your collection.
