Introducing our exquisite Afghan rug, featuring a stunning contemporary design of birds. This rug originates from Afghanistan and showcases the artistic craftsmanship of ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe.
The background of this rug is a lustrous ivory, complemented by a border in a rich rust shade. Its main color remains ivory, creating a harmonious and elegant palette. Made with the highest quality materials, this rug is crafted using wool on cotton, ensuring durability and comfort.
With a size of 2'8" x 6'2", this rug is perfectly suited for various spaces, adding a touch of sophistication and style. Its knots per square inch measure 80, resulting in an impressive 187,152 individually hand-tied knots.
The production process of this rug involves the use of traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, representing a cottage industry type of production. These rugs are woven with an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, utilizing raw Ghazni wool sourced from the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan. This region's mountainous terrain provides sheep with longer staple, oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving. The wool is then hand carted and spun around the city of Herat, located in the western side of Afghanistan.
To ensure the utmost durability, this rug features a double wefted, heavily packed warp weaving technique. It also boasts centuries-old, all-natural dyes, offering an authentic touch of tradition.
Don't miss the opportunity to own this remarkable Afghan rug, an exquisite piece that seamlessly combines contemporary design with time-honored craftsmanship.
