Introducing our exquisite rug, originating from Afghanistan and boasting a stunning Bakshaish design, this tribal-style masterpiece is truly a sight to behold. With a rich camel background and a captivating navy border, this rug exudes elegance and charm. The main color of this rug is a beautiful beige that adds warmth and depth to its overall appearance.

Crafted with utmost care and precision, this rug is expertly made using high-quality materials. The content of this rug is comprised of wool on cotton, ensuring a comfortable and durable foundation. Measuring a generous 12'1" X 17'8", this rug is perfect for adding a touch of sophistication to any space.

The weavers responsible for creating this exceptional rug are primarily from the Esari Subtribe, known for their skill and expertise in rug making. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, a region renowned for producing wool of exceptional quality. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, specifically around Herat, where it is meticulously hand carted and spun into carpet yarn.

To create this rug, traditional floor looms are utilized in the weavers' own homes, reflecting the cottage industry nature of production. The weaving technique employed is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, which adds to the rug's authenticity. The warp and weft of this rug are made of cotton, while the pile is entirely composed of wool. The double wefted, heavily packed, and depressed warp weaving method results in a remarkably durable handwoven carpet.

One of the distinguishing features of this rug is the use of all-natural dye stuffs that have been passed down through generations. This traditional dyeing method ensures that the colors of the rug are rich, vibrant, and long-lasting. The attention to detail and expertise of the weavers is further exemplified by the 80 knots per square inch present in this rug. With a meticulous calculation, it has been estimated that this rug has a staggering total of 2,429,454 individually hand-tied knots.

Immerse yourself in the beauty and craftsmanship of this Afghani Bakshaish tribal rug. Adorn your space with this masterpiece, and let it become a radiant focal point that enhances any room it graces.
