Introducing our exquisite Afghan rug, boasting a design from the renowned Bakshaish Willow collection. This tribal-style rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the southeast, known for its mountainous terrain producing exceptional wool. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in this region, ensuring longer staple and higher quality fibers for carpet weaving.
Skilled weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe, crafted this masterpiece using traditional floor looms in their homes. The weaving process employs the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, resulting in a durable and long-lasting rug. With a cotton warp and weft, the wool pile showcases the expertise of these artisans. The double wefting and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique further enhance its durability, making it one of the most resilient handwoven carpets available today.
This rug is imbued with the timeless beauty of centuries-old natural dye ingredients. The captivating emerald background and the stunning blue border are precisely dyed using natural indigo dye stuffs derived from the leaves of the indigo plant (indigofera tinctoria). Revered for its vibrant blue shades, indigo dye has been utilized by various cultures for thousands of years.
Bringing elegance and splendor to any space, this Afghan rug features a main color of teal, a hue that evokes tranquility and sophistication. The size of this rug measures 9'0" x 12'0", allowing it to anchor and define the ambience of your chosen room.
With a knot density of 80 knots per square inch, our meticulous calculations based on the rug's KPSI reveal a staggering 1,229,112 individually hand-tied knots. This intricacy showcases the skill and dedication poured into every inch of this remarkable rug.
