Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug with a Bakshaish Willow design. This tribal-style rug features an espresso background with a blue border, creating a captivating contrast. Crafted with care, this rug is made of wool on cotton, ensuring a luxurious feel and lasting durability.

Originating from South East Afghanistan, the wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province, known for its mountainous terrain that produces longer staple, oily, and higher-quality wool for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, where it undergoes hand carding and spinning to transform it into carpet yarn.

The weaving process takes place in the homes of skilled weavers, contributing to a cottage industry style of production. Using traditional floor looms, the weavers employ an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type with a cotton warp and weft, resulting in a double-wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weave. This method ensures the most durable handwoven carpets are created, guaranteeing a rug that will endure the test of time.

Adhering to the timeless traditions of carpet making, this rug is dyed using centuries-old, all-natural dye substances. The blue color in this particular rug is derived from natural indigo dye stuffs, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. Indigo, with its rich history dating back thousands of years, has been widely used in cultures worldwide to produce mesmerizing blue hues.

With a knots per square inch count of 162, our meticulous calculations reveal that this rug boasts an impressive 2,403,875 individually hand-tied knots in total. This exceptional level of craftsmanship ensures that each detail in the intricate design is flawlessly represented.

Measuring 9'0" x 11'6", this remarkable rug is a true masterpiece that will enrich any space it graces. Immerse yourself in the beauty of Afghani culture and bring a touch of tribal elegance into your home with this exceptional Bakshaish Willow design.
