Introducing our exquisite Afghani Bakshaish Tribal Rug, a stunning piece that showcases the artistry and craftsmanship of ethnic Turkmen weavers from the Esari Subtribe. This rug is meticulously handcrafted using all-natural materials, making it a true testament to traditional rug-making techniques.
Originating from Afghanistan, this rug is made from wool sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province. The rugged terrain of this region produces high-quality, longer staple wool, known for its durability and lustrous sheen. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to Herat, where it undergoes a meticulous process of hand carding and hand spinning to create the carpet yarn.
Handwoven on traditional floor looms, often within the weavers' own homes, this rug features an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, which further enhances its authentic appeal. The use of a cotton warp and weft, along with a wool pile, ensures a sturdy and long-lasting structure. The double wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique adds to the rug's durability, making it a resilient piece that will withstand the test of time.
The design of this rug showcases a captivating Bakshaish motif, characterized by a tribal aesthetic and intricate patterns. With a light blue background and a rust-colored border, this piece exudes a harmonious blend of colors that will complement a variety of interior styles.
Natural indigo dye stuffs are used to achieve the vibrant blue hue present in this rug. Derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, these dyes have a rich history dating back thousands of years. The use of all-natural dyes imbues the rug with an authentic and earthy charm, adding to its overall appeal.
Measuring 10'0" x 13'8", this rug boasts a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, with a total of approximately 1,555,361 individually hand-tied knots. This intricate level of detail showcases the skill and dedication of the craftsmen behind this masterpiece.
This Afghani Bakshaish Tribal Rug is a testament to the rich heritage and artistic traditions of Afghanistan. Its impeccable craftsmanship, use of all-natural materials, and captivating design make it a remarkable addition to any space. Elevate your home decor with this exquisite rug and immerse yourself in the beauty of Afghan craftsmanship.
