Introducing a magnificent rug from Afghanistan! This stunning piece showcases a contemporary collage design, combining elements from various sources to create a unique and captivating pattern. The background, resembling a serene sky blue, is beautifully complemented by a grey border, while the main color palette features shades of blue that add depth and richness to the overall composition.

Crafted using the finest materials, this rug features a wool pile on a sturdy cotton foundation. The wool used in this piece comes exclusively from sheep located in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for its mountainous terrain that produces longer staple, oily, and high-quality wool. The raw Ghazni wool is carefully brought to the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, where it undergoes the skilled processes of hand carding and hand spinning, resulting in refined carpet yarn ready for weaving.

Speaking of weaving, the creation of this rug takes place in the homes of skilled weavers, reminiscent of a cottage industry setting. These talented individuals employ traditional floor looms, carefully crafting each piece with great precision and care. The rug features an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, further contributing to its distinct character. The uniqueness of this piece is further enhanced by the centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs used to create its vibrant colors.

Utilizing indigofera tinctoria, or true indigo, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, the color blue in this rug is brought to life. Indigo dyeing has a rich history, dating back thousands of years, and has been widely utilized throughout various cultures worldwide to achieve vivid blue hues.

This remarkable rug boasts a knot per square inch (KPSI) of 104, which, when calculated, amounts to an impressive total of 1,244,291 individually hand-tied knots. Such meticulous craftsmanship ensures the durability and longevity of this exquisite piece.

With its impeccable attention to detail, artistry, and use of superior materials, this rug represents a true masterpiece of Afghan weaving tradition. Embrace the beauty and artistry of this extraordinary piece and let its presence enrich your home.
