Introducing our stunning Afghani rug, featuring an exquisite arabesque design. This transitional style rug showcases a charcoal background with a vibrant tangerine border, creating a captivating contrast. Made from high-quality wool on a cotton foundation, this rug offers both comfort and durability.

Originating from Afghanistan, specifically the Esari subtribe, this rug is handwoven by skilled Turkmen weavers. The wool used in this rug is sourced from the Ghazni Province, known for its rich, long-staple wool that lends itself perfectly to carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then brought to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes hand carting and spinning, resulting in high-quality carpet yarn.

Crafted on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, this rug showcases the traditional asymmetrical "Persian" knot type. Its construction includes a cotton warp and weft, with an all-wool pile. The double-wefted and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique employed in its creation ensures exceptional durability, making this rug an investment that will last for generations.

What makes this rug truly special is the use of all-natural dye stuffs, which have been utilized for centuries to achieve its captivating colors. No synthetic dyes have been introduced, ensuring an authentic and organic aesthetic.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162, this rug showcases the meticulous craftsmanship of the weavers. Through careful calculation, we estimate that this rug boasts an impressive total of 660,656 individually hand-tied knots.

Measuring at 2'8" x 10'8", this rug is the perfect size to add a touch of elegance to any space. Place it in a living room, dining area, or bedroom to enhance the ambiance with its timeless beauty.
