Introducing the exquisite Afghani rug with a Bakshaish Willow design, boasting a tribal style that adds a touch of cultural richness to any space. The background features a captivating rust hue, beautifully complemented by a border in a soothing blue shade. Crafted using high-quality materials, the rug is made of wool on cotton, ensuring both comfort and durability.

Originating from the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, weavers from the Esari Subtribe meticulously crafted this rug. The wool used in its creation is sourced from local sheep, thriving in the region's mountainous terrain. This natural environment promotes the growth of longer staple, oily wool, resulting in a superior carpet weaving material.

The rug is handcrafted on traditional floor looms, showcasing the skill and dedication of Afghan artisans. Employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, the weavers utilize a cotton warp and weft, while the pile consists entirely of wool. The double wefted and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique ensures exceptional durability, making it one of the most enduring handwoven carpets available.

This mesmerizing masterpiece features centuries-old natural dyes, lending it a timeless charm. The striking blue color is achieved using natural indigo dye stuffs derived from the leaves of the indigo plant. Renowned for its vibrant blue hues, indigo has been used by various cultures for thousands of years. The red tones in the rug come from natural madder root dyes, obtained from the roots of the madder plant (Rubia tinctorum). Madder root dyes offer a wide range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades, making them a valuable dyeing agent used worldwide for centuries.

Measuring at 5'1" x 7'0", this Afghani rug showcases craftsmanship and artistry at its finest. With an impressive 80 knots per square inch, every intricate detail is meticulously brought to life. Our calculations show that this rug boasts an astounding 404,959 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the painstaking craftsmanship poured into its creation.

Embrace the authentic beauty and timeless elegance of this Afghani rug, a true treasure that will enhance any interior with its distinctive design and rich heritage.
