Introducing our exquisite rug, crafted with meticulous care and expertise, we present to you an Afghan Bakshaish tribal rug. With its origin traced back to Afghanistan, this rug showcases the exemplary craftsmanship of Afghan weavers, particularly those from the Esari Subtribe.

What makes this rug truly exceptional is its design, featuring a sophisticated blend of tribal motifs and influences. The background, adorned in a warm and elegant taupe hue, serves as a perfect canvas for the intricate patterns and details. The border, delicately woven in a charming pink shade, adds a touch of femininity and grace.

Constructed with precision and artistry, this rug is crafted using high-quality materials. The pile is made of wool sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. The mountainous and rugged terrain of this region naturally produces longer staple wool, known for its superior quality. This raw Ghazni wool is then transported to Herat, on the western side of Afghanistan, where it is meticulously carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn.

One striking feature of this rug is its weaving technique. Utilizing traditional floor looms, skilled artisans weave this rug in their own homes, contributing to a cottage industry type of production. Employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, every knot is carefully tied by hand, showcasing the weaver's expertise and attention to detail. The warp and weft are crafted from durable cotton, providing a sturdy foundation for the wool pile.

Authenticity and longevity are hallmarks of this rug, as it boasts of centuries-old natural dye stuffs. The vibrant and earthy colors that adorn the design are derived from all-natural dye sources, further accentuating the rug's cultural heritage and timeless appeal.

Measuring at a generous size of 8'11" x 11'8", this rug is a true statement piece that will effortlessly transform any space. The dense knot count of 80 knots per square inch is a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship and intricate detailing. In fact, our calculations indicate that this rug is comprised of 1,183,913 individually hand-tied knots in total, further exemplifying the dedication and artistry invested in its creation.

This Afghan Bakshaish tribal rug exemplifies the rich cultural heritage and exceptional craftsmanship of Afghan weavers. Its distinctive design, superior materials, and fine attention to detail make it a cherished addition to any collection or interior space.
