Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug! This rug comes from the alluring region of Afghanistan, specifically known for its intricate rug weaving craftsmanship. The design of this stunning piece is called Bakshaish, showcasing a tribal style that exudes a sense of authenticity and cultural richness.

With a background in ivory and a border in burgundy, this rug exhibits a captivating color palette that effortlessly complements various interior styles. The ivory main color adds a touch of elegance and versatility to any space it adorns.

Crafted using high-quality materials, this rug features a wool pile on a cotton warp and weft. The wool used for this rug hails from the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, renowned for its mountainous terrain that produces long staple, oily wool. The raw Ghazni wool is hand carted and hand-spun in the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, creating premium quality carpet yarn. The entire weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, contributing to the rich cultural heritage embedded within the rug.

This handwoven masterpiece showcases the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, adding depth and texture to its design. With double wefting and a heavily packed depressed warp, this rug boasts exceptional durability that ensures its longevity for years to come.

To further highlight its authenticity and time-honored craftsmanship, the rug is colored using centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs. This adds a unique charm and character to each individual rug, making it truly one-of-a-kind.

In terms of its origin, the majority of this rug is woven in the Karam Kul district of Andkhoi, where skilled weavers are known for their meticulous attention to detail and higher knot count weaving. The hand-spun single ply pern knot yarn further enhances the intricacy and quality of this remarkable rug.

Our rug features a remarkable knot density, with 104 knots per square inch. Based on this calculation, we estimate that this rug boasts an astonishing 588,807 individually hand-tied knots in total, reflecting the immense time and skill invested in its creation.

Embodying the cultural heritage and artistry of Afghanistan, this Afghani Bakshaish rug is a masterpiece that will undoubtedly elevate the ambiance of any space it graces. Bring home the timeless beauty and unmatched quality of this rug, and experience the exquisite craftsmanship firsthand.
