Introducing our stunning 8'9" x 14'2" Afghan rug, a true masterpiece of traditional craftsmanship. This rug originates from Afghanistan, known for its exquisite rug-making heritage. With a classical cypress design, this rug showcases the timeless elegance of Afghan rugs.

The background of this rug boasts a warm rust color, creating a rich and inviting ambiance. The border features a striking shade of blue, adding a beautiful contrast to the overall design. The main color of this rug is a vibrant red, adding a bold and captivating element to any space.

Crafted using the finest materials, this rug is made of wool on a cotton foundation. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain in this region produces longer staple, oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is carefully hand-spun into carpet yarn, ensuring exceptional quality.

Using traditional floor looms, skilled weavers from the Esari Subtribe bring this rug to life in their own homes, showcasing the cottage industry type production that is characteristic of Afghan rug-making. The weaving technique employed is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, known for its durability and strength.

The combination of cotton warp and weft with a wool pile results in a double-woven, heavily-packed rug that guarantees durability and longevity. This rug is an investment that can be enjoyed for generations to come.

What sets this rug apart is its meticulous attention to detail. With a knots per square inch count of 162, every inch of this rug is expertly hand-tied, contributing to a total of 2,879,044 individually crafted knots.

The blue color in this rug is derived from natural indigo dyes, known for their vibrant and long-lasting hues. Similarly, the red color is obtained from natural madder root dyes, which have been used for centuries to produce warm and cool shades of red, orange, pink, and brown.

This Afghan rug exemplifies the beauty and artistry of traditional craftsmanship. Its size and design make it a perfect statement piece for a living room, dining area, or any space in need of a touch of sophistication and elegance.

Experience the timeless allure of Afghan rugs and add a touch of history and craftsmanship to your home with this extraordinary piece.
