Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring a contemporary design of butterflies in the sky, crafted with precision and care. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the southeastern part of the country, renowned for its mountainous terrain that provides the perfect conditions for producing high-quality wool.

The wool used in this rug hails from sheep raised in the Ghazni Province, known for their longer staple length and superior quality. The raw wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and hand spinning to create the yarn that will be used to weave this masterpiece.

Skilled Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe, carry out the weaving process on traditional floor looms in their own homes, contributing to the cottage industry charm of this rug. Utilizing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, this rug features a wool pile that adds texture and depth.

The durability of this rug is unmatched, thanks to its double-wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique. This traditional method ensures that this handwoven piece will withstand the test of time, perfect for both high-traffic areas and cherished heirlooms.

Embracing the heritage of carpet weaving, this rug showcases the use of centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs, adding a touch of authenticity and historical significance. The combination of the Ghazni wool and the natural dyes creates a stunning color palette that highlights the contemporary design.

Measuring 3'4" x 5'1", this rug is the epitome of craftsmanship and attention to detail. Each square inch of this rug contains 80 hand-tied knots, culminating in an impressive total of 192,835 knots. This meticulous knotting technique ensures the durability and longevity of this outstanding piece.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of Afghan artistry and elevate your space with this extraordinary Afghani rug, a true testament to the skilled hands and rich textile traditions of the region.
