Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, adorned with the captivating Bakshaish Willow design. This tribal-style rug features a moss background, complemented by a vibrant blue border. Crafted with meticulous care, this rug is made of wool on cotton, ensuring a luxurious and durable piece.

Originating from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province, this rug boasts wool sourced from sheep living in the region's mountainous terrain. The natural conditions contribute to the production of longer staple, oily wool, renowned for its exceptional quality in carpet weaving. The wool is carefully hand carted and spun in the city of Herat before being transformed into the carpet yarn used in this masterpiece.

To create this rug, skilled weavers from the Esari Subtribe employ traditional floor looms, weaving it in their own homes as part of the cottage industry. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type is skillfully utilized, resulting in an intricately woven rug. Made with a cotton warp and weft, the all-wool pile undergoes double wefting, ensuring durability and longevity.

The rich green hue dominates this rug, beautifully complemented by the natural indigo dye used to create the captivating blue in the design. Derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, natural indigo dyes have been utilized for thousands of years to produce vibrant blue shades, standing the test of time.

Measuring at 7'9" x 10'0", this rug exhibits a remarkable knots per square inch of 80. With our careful calculation, we estimate that this rug showcases a total of 882,001 individually hand-tied knots, showcasing the dedication and craftsmanship poured into its creation.

Immerse yourself in the allure of this Afghani masterpiece, a true testament to the artistry and traditions of tribal rug weaving.
