Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, boasting a captivating arabesque design that exudes a tribal charm. This handwoven masterpiece embraces its rich origins, hailing from the remarkable land of Afghanistan. With a background in the purest ivory and a border in a refreshing pistachio hue, this rug is a visual delight.

Crafted using the highest quality materials, this rug showcases the skilled artistry of ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep residing in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain of this region naturally produces longer staple oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving and ensuring heightened quality.

After collecting the raw Ghazni wool, it is brought to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carting and hand spinning. The result is carpet yarn of utmost refinement, ready to be transformed on traditional floor looms in the homes of the weavers themselves. This cottage industry-like production is a testament to the authentic craftsmanship infused into every knot.

Speaking of knots, our Afghani rug showcases an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, meticulously tied by the talented hands of experienced weavers. The cotton warp and weft seamlessly support the wool pile, resulting in a durable and long-lasting rug.

A true marvel, this rug embraces centuries-old dyeing techniques, utilizing all-natural dye stuffs. Every vibrant hue is derived from ingredients that have stood the test of time, lending a sense of authenticity and historic significance to this remarkable piece.

Furthermore, our rug boasts a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162, showcasing the incredible precision and attention to detail that goes into its creation. To give you an idea of the sheer dedication involved, we have calculated that this rug consists of a staggering total of 2,242,737 individually hand-tied knots.

Immerse yourself in the allure of this Afghani rug, where traditional craftsmanship, exquisite design, and rich heritage converge. Add a touch of elegance to your space with this truly remarkable piece.
