Introducing an exquisite Afghan rug with a stunning Chinese Art Deco design. This traditional masterpiece originates from the Afghani region, known for its incredible weaving craftsmanship. The rug features a magnificent navy background that beautifully contrasts with a marigold border, adding an elegant touch to any space.
Crafted with the utmost care, this high-quality rug is made of wool on cotton, ensuring both durability and comfort. It is created using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique, meticulously woven by skilled Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari subtribe. These weavers utilize wool sourced from the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for its superior quality. The mountainous terrain in this region provides luscious, longer-staple, oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving.
The intricate weaving process takes place in the weavers' own homes, following a traditional cottage industry approach. Utilizing floor looms, the weavers carefully handcraft each rug, resulting in a labor of love that guarantees exceptional durability. The rug's double-wefted, heavily-packed, and depressed warp weaving technique enhances its strength and resilience, ensuring it withstands the test of time.
This rug boasts mesmerizing all-natural dye colors, accomplished through centuries-old dyeing methods. The captivating blue hues are derived from natural indigo dye stuffs, extracted from the leaves of the indigo plant (indigofera tinctoria). As one of humanity's oldest known dyes, indigo has a rich history that spans thousands of years. Its vibrant blue tones have been revered across various cultures worldwide.
Measuring 8'2" x 9'8", this rug's beauty is further expressed through its impressive knots per square inch (KPSI) count of 80. Elegantly hand-tied with precision, our calculations have determined that this rug comprises an astounding 898,447 individually crafted knots in total. Such meticulous attention to detail showcases the remarkable craftsmanship embedded within this masterpiece.
Invest in this awe-inspiring Afghan rug to elevate your space's aesthetics and create a truly captivating atmosphere.
