Introducing a stunning rug crafted using techniques originating from Afghanistan, known for its rich heritage in rug making. This particular rug showcases a captivating scene from the ocean, featuring four large fish - two swimming left and two swimming right. The fish are meticulously crafted and adorned in vibrant colors, bringing a lively and dynamic element to the rug.

The background of this rug is a striking denim shade, providing a visually pleasing contrast to the colorful fish. The main color theme of this rug is a beautiful shade of blue, evoking a sense of tranquility and serenity, reminiscent of the vast ocean.

Crafted with utmost care, this rug is made using high-quality materials. The content includes wool on a cotton foundation, ensuring durability and longevity. This rug boasts a size of 5'4" x 6'10", making it suitable for various spaces and settings.

The impeccable craftsmanship of this rug is thanks to the expertise of ethnic Turkmen weavers, particularly those from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that fosters the growth of longer staple, oily, and higher-quality wool ideal for carpet weaving.

The rug is woven on traditional floor looms, showcasing the skilled artistry of the weavers in their own homes. Its construction follows an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, enhancing the rug's authenticity and heritage. The warp and weft consist of cotton, while the pile is made entirely of wool. With double wefting and a heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, this rug ensures exceptional durability, making it ideal for high-traffic areas.

The vibrant blue color you see in this rug is achieved using natural indigo dye. Derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, natural indigo dye has a long history dating back thousands of years. It has been widely used in various cultures around the world to create captivating blue hues.

Not only is this rug visually stunning, but it also exhibits impressive craftsmanship with a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. By calculating the KPSI of this rug, we estimate a remarkable 414,757 individually hand-tied knots.

This rug is a true work of art. From its contemporary design featuring colorful fish to its rich history and craftsmanship rooted in Afghan tradition, this rug is sure to mesmerize and enhance any space it graces.
