Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, with a stunning design inspired by the timeless beauty of Arabesque motifs. This transitional style rug showcases a captivating pattern that will add an air of sophistication to any space. The background in a sophisticated taupe hue perfectly complements the vibrant green border, creating a harmonious color palette.

Crafted with meticulous care and attention to detail, this rug hails from Afghanistan, known for its rich tradition of rug weaving. The wool used in this masterpiece is sourced from the Ghazni Province, located in the southeastern part of the country. This region's mountainous terrain naturally produces longer staple, oily wool, renowned for its superior quality in carpet weaving.

The raw wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is carefully hand carted and spun into carpet yarn. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms, often within the weavers' own homes, reflecting the cottage industry nature of production. The use of the asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique further enhances the rug's authenticity and craftsmanship.

For enhanced durability, this rug features a double-wefted construction with a heavily packed depressed warp. These traditional weaving techniques contribute to its longevity, ensuring it can withstand the test of time and daily use.

Imbued with a deep sense of history, this rug embraces centuries-old traditions by utilizing only natural dye stuffs. Each color within the design has been carefully achieved through these natural dyes, resulting in shades that are both captivating and environmentally friendly.

Measuring 4'0" x 10'2", this rug is the perfect size to adorn your living space, hallway, or any area in need of a touch of elegance. It is crafted with a wool pile on a cotton warp and weft, combining comfort and durability in one exquisite piece. With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162, we have meticulously calculated that this rug features a remarkable total of 944,521 individually hand-tied knots.

Embrace the allure of Afghani craftsmanship with this remarkable rug, showcasing the beauty of Arabesque design and the rich heritage of rug weaving. Add a touch of elegance to your home with this transitional masterpiece.
