Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, boasting a captivating Bakshaish design. This tribal-style masterpiece showcases a stunning blue background, gracefully adorned with an ivory border.

Crafted with utmost care and precision, this rug hails from the skilled hands of ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. These talented artisans source their high-quality wool from the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for its mountainous terrain that naturally yields longer staple, oily wool ideal for carpet weaving.

The process begins with raw Ghazni wool, which is carefully transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat. Here, the wool is meticulously hand carted and spun into carpet yarn ready for frying. Woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, this rug is a testament to the cottage industry type production prevalent in this region.

Employing an asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique, this rug features a cotton warp and weft with a lustrous wool pile. Its double wefted construction and heavily packed depressed warp weaving ensure exceptional durability, making it a lasting investment in both style and substance.

Adding to its allure, this rug boasts a vibrant blue hue derived from natural indigo dyes. These dyes, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant, have a rich history dating back thousands of years. Cultures worldwide have prized them for producing vibrant blue tones, and our rug is no exception.

With a remarkable knot count of 80 knots per square inch, this rug showcases the true artistry and craftsmanship of its makers. In fact, we have meticulously calculated that this item features an impressive total of 1,610,215 individually hand-tied knots.

Indulge in the timeless beauty and cultural heritage encapsulated within this Afghani rug. It is a stunning testament to the skill and artistry of its Turkmen weavers, and a cherished addition to any discerning collector's home.
