Introducing our exquisite rug from Afghanistan, featuring a beautiful Bijar design with a tribal twist. This rug showcases the craftsmanship of ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe, who employ traditional techniques passed down through generations.

The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that yields longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western region of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is meticulously hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn, ready for weaving.

Using traditional floor looms in their own homes, the weavers create this rug with an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type. The cotton warp and weft provide a sturdy foundation, supporting the wool pile. The double-wefted and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique ensures exceptional durability and longevity.

With centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, this rug features a captivating navy background and a teal border. The striking blue color is achieved through the use of natural indigo dye, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant. Indigo, one of the oldest known dyes worldwide, has a rich history spanning thousands of years and is revered for the vibrant blue hues it produces.

Measuring 7'1" x 13'9", this rug boasts a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. Based on this KPSI, we can confidently state that this rug contains an astounding 1,108,424 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship employed in its creation.

Experience the beauty and artistry of this Afghan rug, a true masterpiece that captures the essence of its origin and showcases the unrivaled skills of its skilled weavers.
