Introducing our exquisite Afghani Bijar rug, a testament to the rich heritage of tribal design. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically hand-woven by ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. Crafted with care, this rug showcases the exceptional quality of Ghazni Province wool, sourced from sheep raised in the region's mountainous terrain, known for producing longer staple, oily wool perfect for carpet weaving.

The wool is meticulously transformed in Herat, where it undergoes hand carting and spinning, resulting in carpet yarn of the highest quality. Each rug is woven on traditional floor looms within people's own homes, creating a cottage industry ambiance. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type enhances the tribal aesthetic, while the cotton warp and weft support the luxurious all-wool pile.

Through double wefting and a heavily packed, depressed warp weaving technique, this rug exemplifies durability and resilience. With centuries-old natural dye stuffs, our rug showcases an enchanting array of colors, including an ivory background and a navy border. The main color scheme revolves around a captivating ivory hue, evoking a sense of sophistication and elegance.

Measuring 4'2" x 7'9", our Afghani Bijar rug boasts a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, attesting to its meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail. By calculating the KPSI, we can deduce that this rug features a staggering 367,503 individually hand-tied knots, a true testament to the weaver's dedication and skill.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of this tribal masterpiece, as it effortlessly enhances any space with its captivating design and durable craftsmanship. Embrace the storied history and cultural significance of this Afghani Bijar rug, adding a touch of warmth and authenticity to your home.
