Introducing our exquisite Afghan rug, crafted with skill and precision by ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. This stunning piece originates from the mountainous Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, where sheep graze on lush pastures, producing long-staple, high-quality wool ideal for carpet weaving.

Our artisans bring the raw Ghazni wool to the western side of Afghanistan, specifically Herat, where it undergoes meticulous hand carding and spinning to transform it into carpet yarn of the finest quality. Using traditional floor looms in their own homes, these skilled weavers create a timeless masterpiece, showcasing the beauty of tribal design.

The design of this rug follows the Bakshaish Willow pattern, known for its tribal charm and intricate motifs. Against a rich navy background, the rust border adds depth and elegance, enhancing the overall allure of the rug. Crafted using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique, each knot works harmoniously together to create a durable and visually captivating masterpiece.

With a content of wool on cotton, this rug boasts a luxurious texture and is built to stand the test of time. The use of double wefted, heavily packed, depressed warp weaving further contributes to its durability, ensuring it will continue to be cherished for generations to come.

True to tradition, our Afghan rug is dyed using centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs. The captivating blue hue derives from natural indigo dye, obtained from the leaves of the indigo plant (also known as indigofera tinctoria). Celebrated for thousands of years, indigo dye has lent its vibrant blue shades to cultures worldwide.

Measuring 6'0" x 9'1", this rug provides a generous size to adorn any space with its beauty. With 80 knots per square inch, we estimate that this masterpiece showcases an impressive 620,244 individually hand-tied knots in total, truly exemplifying the skilled craftsmanship that went into its creation.

Embrace the heritage and artistry of Afghan rug weaving with this exceptional piece. Its timeless design and durable construction make it an investment worth treasuring. Decorate your living space with a touch of tribal charm and experience the elegant allure of this Afghan rug.
