Introducing our exquisite rug from Afghanistan, originating from the talented weavers of the ethnic Turkmen community, predominantly the Esari Subtribe. Crafted with the finest quality wool sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrains that naturally yield longer staple, oily, and superior wool for carpet weaving.

The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western region near Herat, where it undergoes a meticulous process of hand carding and hand spinning, transforming it into the finest yarn specifically designed for the creation of this magnificent rug. Each individual strand is crafted with utmost care and precision, ensuring the highest quality in every knot.

This rug showcases a stunning contemporary design featuring four large fish, with two swimming gracefully to the left and the other two elegantly gliding to the right. The fish are vibrant and colorful, creating a captivating scene reminiscent of the ocean. Surrounding the central motif are smaller fish, swimming in various directions, adding movement and depth to the overall composition.

Exuding a sense of sophistication, the background of this rug boasts a luxurious taupe hue, providing an elegant and versatile backdrop for the exquisite design. The border, adorned in a vibrant fuscia shade, adds a pop of color and creates a striking contrast against the muted background.

Crafted using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug showcases the skillful artistry of Afghan weavers. The foundation consists of cotton warp and weft, while the pile is made entirely of wool. The double wefted construction, combined with the heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, ensures exceptional durability, resulting in a rug that will withstand the test of time.

Adding to its allure, this rug derives its captivating colors from centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs. The careful selection and usage of these dyes imbue each thread with rich, vibrant tones that will remain beautiful and vibrant for generations to come.

Measuring at 5'2" x 6'9", this rug is the perfect size to adorn any living space or create a focal point in a room. With a knot count of 80 knots per square inch, our calculations indicate that this remarkable piece consists of approximately 396,903 individually hand-tied knots in total. Each knot represents the dedication, expertise, and passion of the skilled weavers who brought this rug to life.

Elevate your space with the magnificence of our Afghan rug, meticulously crafted by the talented hands of Turkmen weavers. Experience the beauty, durability, and timeless charm that comes with owning a masterpiece of this caliber.
