Introducing our remarkable rug from Afghanistan, this exquisite piece showcases the impeccable craftsmanship of ethnic Turkmen weavers, mostly hailing from the Esari Subtribe. Handwoven with utmost care, every detail of this rug reflects the rich cultural heritage of the region.

The design of this tribal-style rug follows the beautiful Bakshaish Willow pattern, a visual feast for the eyes. The background color features a deep navy hue, providing a striking contrast to the intricate rust border. Its main color is a captivating blue, which comes from all-natural indigo dye, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant.

Measuring at 8'6" x 9'9", this rug is an ideal size to grace any room with its presence. Crafted using high-quality wool piled on a cotton base, it offers both comfort and durability. The raw Ghazni wool, sourced from the mountainous terrain of the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, is renowned for its long staple and oily nature, making it perfect for carpet weaving.

To achieve its impressive construction, this rug was woven on traditional floor looms within the weavers' own homes. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique was employed, producing a distinctive and timeless texture. The cotton warp and wool weft, combined with double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving, ensure that this rug is not only beautiful but also enduring.

With a knots per square inch count of 80, we estimate that this rug has a staggering total of 943,172 individually hand-tied knots. Such meticulous handiwork further testifies to the exceptional quality of this piece. The centuries-old tradition of using all-natural dyes adds depth to its colors, making it an heirloom-quality rug.

Every detail of this rug speaks volumes about the skill and dedication of the weavers. Its design, inspired by the Bakshaish Willow pattern, captures the imagination with its intricate artistry. The vibrant blue hues, derived from natural indigo dyes, offer a timeless beauty that has been cherished for centuries.

This rug, a testament to the rich artistic heritage of Afghanistan, is bound to be a cherished addition to any collection or home. Its quality construction, combined with its captivating design, makes it a treasure to be appreciated for years to come.
