Introducing a stunning Afghani Bakshaish Tribal Rug, exquisitely crafted with a vibrant coral background and a captivating blue border. This rug showcases the rich heritage of Afghan rug weaving, specifically originating from the Esari Subtribe in Afghanistan.

Made from high-quality wool sourced from the Ghazni Province's mountainous terrain, this rug boasts longer staple wool, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is carefully transported to Herat, where it is hand-carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' homes, embodying the true essence of cottage industry production.

The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and the cotton warp and weft, combined with a wool pile, ensure both aesthetic beauty and exceptional durability. With centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs, this rug proudly showcases the timeless artistry of Afghan rug weaving.

Measuring 10'0" x 13'5", this rug is meticulously woven with 80 knots per square inch, resulting in an impressive 1,526,910 individually hand-tied knots throughout the entire rug.

The striking blue color in this rug is derived from natural indigo dye stuffs, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant (indigofera tinctoria). Renowned for producing vibrant blue hues, natural indigo dyes have been used by various cultures worldwide for thousands of years.

Additionally, the captivating red color in this rug is achieved through natural madder root dyes. Cultivated for centuries, madder root dyes (Rubia tinctorum) offer a range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades. This traditional dyeing technique has been cherished by many cultures around the world.

Experience the beauty, authenticity, and durability of this exceptional Afghani Bakshaish Tribal Rug. Bring home a piece of history and artistry that adds warmth and elegance to any living space.
