Introducing our exquisite Afghan Bakshaish Tribal Rug, a true masterpiece that will add a touch of elegance and culture to any space. Handcrafted in Afghanistan with care and precision, this rug boasts a rich history and striking design.

Originating from the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain nurtures sheep with high-quality wool, this rug's wool is sourced from the Esari Subtribe, known for their exceptional weaving skills. The wool is meticulously hand-spun and carted in Herat, on the western side of Afghanistan, where it is transformed into luxurious carpet yarn, ready for weaving.

Using traditional floor looms in the weaver's homes, this rug is crafted with an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type. The warp and weft of this masterpiece are made of cotton, providing a sturdy foundation for the all wool pile. The double-wefted technique and densely woven depressed warp create a durable and long-lasting rug.

The captivating design of this Bakshaish rug features a rust background, beautifully complemented by a blue border. The main color, a vibrant red, adds warmth and vibrancy to the overall aesthetic. These colors originate from all-natural dye stuffs, imparting a timeless elegance to the rug.

This rug showcases the exceptional craftsmanship of skilled weavers from the Karam Kul district of Andkhoi, known for their attention to detail and ability to achieve a higher knot count. With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 104, our calculations show that this rug boasts an impressive 776,880 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the weaver's dedication and expertise.

Measuring at 5'11" x 8'10", this Afghan Bakshaish Tribal Rug is the perfect size to enhance any room. Its timeless design, durable construction, and rich cultural heritage make it a treasured addition to any home or collection.

Experience the beauty and artistry of this magnificent rug, meticulously crafted with centuries-old techniques and natural dyes. Embrace the history and culture woven into each thread, and let this rug become the centerpiece of your space, exuding elegance and sophistication.
