Introducing our exquisite Afghan rug, boasting an authentic arabesque design that emanates timeless grandeur. Originating from the fertile lands of Afghanistan, known for its rich rug-weaving heritage, this traditional masterpiece is sure to grace your space with elegance.

The rug features a deep navy background that serves as a captivating canvas for the intricate motifs inspired by Arabesque art. Delicate rust-toned borders complement the main design, adding a touch of warmth and harmony to the overall composition.

Made with utmost craftsmanship, this rug showcases the expertise of Turkmen weavers, mainly from the Esari subtribe. The wool used in its creation is sourced from Ghazni Province, renowned for producing high-quality wool due to the mountainous terrain. This raw Ghazni wool is meticulously hand-carded, hand-spun, and transformed into carpet yarn in the western region near Herat.

Woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' homes, this rug follows the time-honored Persian knot technique, resulting in an asymmetrical and intricately textured surface. The foundation consists of cotton warp and weft, while the pile is made entirely of wool. The double weft technique, coupled with the heavily packed depressed warp weaving, ensures exceptional durability, making this rug a lasting investment.

Centuries-old natural dye substances are used to color the rug, ensuring vibrant and enduring hues. The magnificent blue tones in this particular piece are derived from natural indigo dye stuffs. Indigo, obtained from the leaves of the indigo plant, has been cherished for thousands of years as one of the oldest known dyes used by humans. Its history transcends cultures, with various civilizations harnessing its magical properties to create captivating blue shades.

With a remarkable knots-per-square-inch count of 104, this rug exemplifies the weavers' dedication to precision and quality. Calculations reveal that a total of 419,514 individual knots have been painstakingly tied by hand, attesting to the meticulous craftsmanship behind this masterpiece.

Embrace the allure of Afghan artistry and transform your space with this captivating Afghan rug. Its timeless design, rich history, and exceptional quality make it a treasure worth cherishing for generations to come.
