Introducing our exquisite Afghan Arabesque Transitional Rug. This stunning piece originates from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the southeast region. The weavers responsible for this rug come from the Ethnic Turkmen community, notably the Esari Subtribe.

Crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail, this rug features a captivating Arabesque design. The background color is a sophisticated silver, complemented by a border in a calming shade of aqua. The overall color scheme exudes a sense of elegance and tranquility.

The rug is made using top-quality materials. The pile is crafted from pure wool sourced from local sheep in the Ghazni Province. This region's mountainous terrain naturally produces longer-staple, oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving. After being hand-spun into carpet yarn, the wool is then woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' homes, contributing to a cottage industry-type production. The warp and weft are made from cotton, while the pile consists entirely of wool.

To ensure its durability, this rug is double wefted and features heavily packed depressed warp weaving, a technique that has been perfected over centuries. The knots used in the weaving process are of the asymmetrical "Persian" type, resulting in a visually appealing and structurally sound rug.

One of the distinguishing characteristics of this rug is the use of all-natural dye stuffs. The weavers employ traditional dyeing methods that have been passed down through generations, utilizing ancient techniques to achieve exquisite and long-lasting colors.

In terms of size, this Afghan Arabesque Transitional Rug measures 6'2" in width and 8'11" in length. Its knots per square inch (KPSI) is a remarkable 80, totaling an impressive 625,784 individually hand-tied knots.

Embrace the beauty and craftsmanship of this Afghan Arabesque Transitional Rug, a testament to the rich cultural heritage and skilled artistry of its creators.
