Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug with an elegant Arabesque design. This tribal-style rug features a tangerine background with an ivory border, creating a visually striking contrast. Crafted from high-quality materials, this rug is made of wool on cotton, ensuring its durability and longevity.
Originating from Afghanistan, this rug is meticulously woven by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, mainly from the Esari subtribe. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that produces longer staple oily wool, perfect for carpet weaving.
The raw Ghazni wool is brought to the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, where it undergoes the traditional process of hand carting and hand spinning into carpet yarn. The weaving takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, contributing to a cottage industry-style production.
With an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, this rug showcases the expertise of the weavers. The double wefting, along with the heavily packed depressed warp weaving, ensures the utmost durability in this handwoven masterpiece.
What sets this rug apart is its use of centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs, adding a touch of authenticity and charm. The combination of traditional craftsmanship and organic dyes creates a unique and captivating piece.
Measuring at 8'3" x 9'7", this rug is the perfect addition to any space, adding warmth and style. With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, our meticulous calculations estimate that this rug consists of approximately 899,780 individually hand-tied knots, showcasing the dedication and skill of the weavers.
Embrace the rich history and artistry of this Afghani rug, a true testament to the centuries-old weaving tradition. Experience the beauty of tribal design and vibrant colors with this remarkable piece that will undoubtedly become a cherished addition to your home.
