Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring a captivating Arabesque design. This traditional style rug showcases a charming charcoal background, beautifully contrasted by a teal border. Crafted from high-quality wool on a cotton base, this rug exudes both elegance and durability.
Originating from ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari subtribe, this rug is woven with wool sourced from the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain of this region naturally yields longer staple, oily wool of superior quality for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is meticulously hand-spun into carpet yarn.
Woven on traditional floor looms by skilled artisans, often within the comfort of their own homes, this rug showcases the artistry and dedication of Afghan craftsmanship. Using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, the rug is double wefted and heavily packed, resulting in a supremely durable and long-lasting piece.
What truly sets this rug apart is its centuries-old all-natural dyeing process, which lends it a rich and authentic color palette. No artificial dyes are used, ensuring the rug maintains its timeless aesthetic.
Measuring at an impressive size of 9'4" x 11'9", this Afghani masterpiece showcases 80 knots per square inch. By our calculations, this equates to an astounding 1,248,075 individually hand-tied knots in total. Such intricate craftsmanship and attention to detail make this rug a true work of art.
Discover the captivating beauty of this Afghani Arabesque rug, a testament to the rich heritage and expertise of Afghan rug weaving. Immerse yourself in the beauty and craftsmanship by adding this remarkable piece to your collection.
