This Afghani rug features a traditional design called Cypress Lavar, originating from Afghan craftsmen, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The rug's background adopts a rustic rust color, accentuated by a navy border. The main color of the rug is a vibrant red, achieved by using all-natural madder root dyes.

Crafted using a combination of wool on cotton, this rug showcases the skilled weaving techniques of Turkmen weavers. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for producing longer staple, higher-quality wool due to its mountainous terrain. After the wool is hand-spun and hand-carded in the western region of Afghanistan, it is woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, reflecting a cottage industry production style.

Featuring an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this new rug boasts a knot count of 162 per square inch, resulting in an impressive 3,170,328 individually hand-tied knots. The durability of this rug is enhanced by its double wefting and heavily packed, depressed warp weaving.

With dimensions of 9'9" x 14'0", this rug is perfect for larger living spaces or dining areas. Its intricate design and superior craftsmanship make it a standout piece that will add a touch of elegance to any room.

Every aspect of this rug showcases the rich history of traditional carpet weaving. From the centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs to the meticulous hand-weaving techniques, this rug is a testament to the artistry and skill of Afghan craftsmen. Its cultural significance and the use of traditional materials make it a unique and valuable addition to any collection.
