Introducing a stunning Afghani rug with a captivating Arabesque design. This transitional-style rug is an exquisite piece of craftsmanship that originates from Afghanistan. The background of this rug is a soothing taupe, while the border features a vibrant green color. The main color is a beautiful shade of beige, adding a touch of elegance to the overall design.

Crafted using the finest materials, this rug is made of high-quality wool on a cotton base. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for producing longer staple, oily wool perfect for carpet weaving. The raw wool is then brought to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is carefully hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn.

The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the homes of skilled weavers, contributing to a cottage industry type of production. Using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, the rug showcases meticulous craftsmanship. The cotton warp and weft, combined with the all-wool pile, create a double-wefted, heavily packed, and depressed warp weave, ensuring exceptional durability.

One of the remarkable aspects of this rug is its use of centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs. The rich colors in this rug have been derived from traditional and organic dyeing methods, adding to its authenticity and charm. Each color is carefully selected and skillfully applied, resulting in a harmonious and visually striking design.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162, this rug exhibits a high level of intricacy and attention to detail. Based on our calculations, this translates to an impressive total of 1,242,587 individually hand-tied knots throughout the rug. This showcases the dedication and skill of the weavers behind this masterpiece.

Measuring 6'0" x 8'11", this Afghani rug is the perfect size to enhance the beauty of any room. Its timeless design, exceptional quality, and durable construction make it a remarkable addition to any rug collection. Immerse yourself in the rich history and artistry of this Afghan masterpiece and let its beauty adorn your living space.
