Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug with a tribal design and an Arabesque motif. This rug comes from the skilled Turkmen weavers, mainly from the Esari Subtribe, who excel in producing high-quality rugs.

The rug's background features a soothing light blue color, beautifully complemented by a vibrant red border. The main color scheme is an elegant shade of blue.

Crafted with utmost precision and care, this rug is made of wool on cotton, providing a comfortable and durable foundation. The dimensions of this masterpiece are 8'4" x 9'11".

Originating from the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, this rug benefits from the region's mountainous terrain, which yields longer, higher-quality wool. The wool is carefully hand-spun by skilled weavers in the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat.

Using traditional floor looms, the weavers employ an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, resulting in a durable and expertly crafted rug. The thoughtful double-wefted and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique enhances its durability, ensuring it will remain a cherished piece for generations to come.

Furthermore, this rug boasts centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, imparting authenticity and a timeless appeal. The striking blue hues found in this rug are derived from natural indigo dye, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. Indigo, an ancient and revered dye, has been used by various cultures worldwide to produce exquisite shades of blue.

The red tones in this rug are derived from natural madder root dyes. Madder root, scientifically known as Rubia tinctorum, has a rich history as a dyeing agent and has been cultivated for centuries. It produces a range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades, adding depth and character to our rug.

With 104 knots per square inch and a total of 1,228,388 individually hand-tied knots, this rug showcases the exceptional skill and dedication of its weavers. Skilled artisans in the Karam Kul district of Andkhoi are known for their meticulous craftsmanship and higher knot count weaving techniques, ensuring the rug's superior quality.

Experience the elegance and artistry of this Afghani rug, a true testament to the rich heritage and exquisite craftsmanship of its origin. Add a touch of authenticity and beauty to your space with this remarkable piece.
