Introducing the remarkable Afghan rug with a captivating design known as Bakshaish Willow. This tribal-style rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province with its mountainous terrain that naturally produces high-quality wool for carpet weaving. The background of this rug is a vibrant evergreen, while the border showcases a beautiful shade of blue.

Crafted with care, this new rug features a wool pile on a cotton warp and weft, ensuring durability for years to come. It has been woven on traditional floor looms by skilled weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The weaving technique used is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, contributing to the rug's unique character.

With dimensions of 2'9" x 7'11", this rug is a stunning addition to any space. Its design and colors evoke a sense of nature and tranquility, making it a versatile piece that complements various interior styles.

To ensure its longevity, this rug has been dyed using centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs, including the renowned natural indigo dye. Derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, natural indigo dyes have been cherished for their vibrant blue hues since ancient times.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 104, our calculations estimate that this rug boasts an impressive 323,614 individually hand-tied knots in total. This attention to detail is a testament to the craftsmanship and dedication of the weavers.

Immerse yourself in the story of this Afghan rug, an exquisite piece that reflects the rich weaving traditions and cultural heritage of its origin.
