Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring the stunning Bakshaish Willow design. With its tribal style and medium blue background, this rug is a true masterpiece. The grass border adds a touch of nature, while the main color of blue brings a sense of calm to any space.
Crafted from wool on cotton, this rug showcases the exceptional skill of ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug is sourced from the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, renowned for its mountainous terrain that produces longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool. Hand-carried and hand-spun in Herat, the wool is transformed into carpet yarn ready for weaving.
Using traditional floor looms in their own homes, these talented weavers create each rug with an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type. The cotton warp and weft, combined with the all-wool pile, ensure exceptional durability. This rug is double wefted, with a heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, resulting in a long-lasting and resilient piece.
The rich blue color of this rug is achieved through all-natural dye stuffs, specifically natural indigo. Derived from the leaves of the indigo plant (indigofera tinctoria), this dye has been used for thousands of years across different cultures worldwide to create vibrant blue hues.
With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug exudes intricate craftsmanship. In fact, we have meticulously calculated that there are 631,630 individually hand-tied knots in this rug. This level of detail showcases the immense dedication and skill of the weavers.
Measuring 6'2" x 9'0", this rug is a true testament to the artistry and heritage of Afghan rug weaving. Its timeless design and meticulous craftsmanship make it an exceptional addition to any home or collection.
