Introducing the unique and exquisite Afghani rug with an enchanting arabesque design. This tribal-style rug showcases the rich heritage of the ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe.

Crafted using the finest materials, this rug features a sky background that beautifully highlights the intricate mint border. The main color, a mesmerizing shade of blue, adds a touch of elegance to its overall appearance.

Made with care and expertise, this new rug boasts a content of wool on cotton, ensuring both comfort and durability. The size of this magnificent piece measures 8'4" x 10'2". With 80 knots per square inch, this rug displays a remarkable level of craftsmanship, evident in the meticulously hand-tied knots. In fact, we have meticulously counted and determined that there are 964,194 individually hand-tied knots in this rug.

The creation of this rug is a true labor of love. The wool used in its production comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. This region's mountainous terrain naturally produces longer staple, oily, and high-quality wool ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then carefully processed in Herat, located on the western side of Afghanistan, where it is hand-carted and hand-spun into carpet yarn.

Woven on traditional floor looms in the weaver's homes, this rug is a testament to the rich traditions of the Afghan people. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, combined with a cotton warp and weft, results in a durable and long-lasting rug. This weaving technique, combined with the centuries-old natural dye stuffs, adds to the distinct charm and authenticity of this remarkable piece.

The captivating blue hues of this rug are derived from natural indigo dye stuffs. Indigo, known as indigofera tinctoria or true indigo, has been used for thousands of years by various cultures worldwide to create vibrant blue colors. The use of natural indigo dyes evokes a sense of timeless beauty and history.

Immerse yourself in the beauty and tradition of Afghan craftsmanship with this Afghani rug. Every detail, from the meticulously hand-tied knots to the rich natural dyes, showcases the skill and dedication of the Turkmen weavers. Bring an element of elegance and cultural heritage into your space with this remarkable piece of art.
