Introducing our exquisite Afghan rug, featuring the captivating Bakshaish Willow design. This tribal-style rug originates from Afghanistan, and its vibrant medium blue background beautifully complements the rust border. The main color of this rug is a deep blue hue, highlighting the intricate details of the design.

Crafted with utmost precision, this rug is made from high-quality wool on a cotton base, ensuring its durability and longevity. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the mountainous terrain of the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for producing longer staple, oily wool ideal for carpet weaving.

The weaving process of this rug involves skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The raw Ghazni wool is transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is hand carted and spun into carpet yarn. The weaving itself takes place on traditional floor looms within the weavers' homes, reflecting a cottage industry-style production.

Featuring an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft with an all-wool pile, this rug exemplifies the finest craftsmanship. With its double wefted and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, this rug is not only visually stunning but also exceptionally durable.

What truly sets this rug apart are the centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs used in its creation. The captivating blue tones are achieved through the use of natural indigo dyes, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant. These dyes have been cherished for thousands of years, producing vibrant blue hues that have been widely esteemed in various cultures around the world.

To appreciate the intricate craftsmanship even further, let's delve into the technical details. This rug boasts a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, which translates to a total of 176,398 individually hand-tied knots. Each knot is a testament to the skill and dedication poured into crafting this masterpiece.

In summary, our Afghan rug featuring the Bakshaish Willow design is a true treasure. Its origins in Afghanistan, the meticulous weaving techniques, and the all-natural dye stuffs used combine to create a unique and captivating work of art. Bring home this stunning rug and elevate the ambiance of your space with its timeless beauty.
