Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug with stunning Arabesque design. This transitional-style rug features a background in a soothing taupe shade, while the border adds a pop of persimmon. It is crafted using premium quality materials, with a luxurious wool pile on a sturdy cotton warp and weft.

The origin of this rug lies in Afghanistan, specifically in the Ghazni Province, known for its mountainous terrain that produces high-quality wool. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in this region. Afterward, the raw Ghazni wool is transported to Herat on the western side of Afghanistan, where it is carefully hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn.

The intricate weaving of this rug is a testament to the skill and dedication of the ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. Utilizing traditional floor looms in their homes, these talented artisans employ an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, resulting in a truly unique and durable rug. The weaving process involves double wefting and heavily packed depressed warp weaving, ensuring longevity and strength.

Adding to the allure of this rug are the centuries-old natural dye stuffs used to achieve its rich and harmonious colors. The delicate combination of beige and persimmon creates a visually captivating piece that will complement any space.

In terms of craftsmanship, this rug boasts a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162, an impressive indication of the meticulous attention to detail. To put that into perspective, our calculations estimate that there are a staggering 1,879,989 individually hand-tied knots in this rug.

Measuring at 7'10" x 10'4", this stunning afghani rug is a testament to the history and cultural significance of carpet weaving in Afghanistan. Its timeless design and superior craftsmanship make it a valuable addition to any collection or space.
