Introducing our exquisite rug, originating from Afghanistan and showcasing the timeless design of Erased Mamluk, this transitional masterpiece effortlessly blends traditional and contemporary elements. The rug features a warm rust background with a striking blue border, creating a captivating visual contrast.

Crafted with utmost care and precision, this rug is made from high-quality materials. The wool used for the pile is sourced from the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain produces longer staple, oily, and superior quality wool. The raw Ghazni wool is then hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn in the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat.

This rug is woven by skilled Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe, known for their expertise in achieving higher knot count weaving. It is meticulously hand-knotted using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, ensuring its durability and longevity. The warp and weft are made of cotton, providing a sturdy foundation for the wool pile.

Every aspect of this rug reflects the rich tradition and artistry embedded in Afghan weaving. Woven on traditional floor looms, each piece is a testament to the devotion and dedication of the weavers. The wool is dyed using centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs, resulting in rich and vibrant colors that stand the test of time.

The deep blue hue in this rug is derived from natural indigo dye stuffs, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. This ancient dye has been cherished for its ability to produce stunning blue shades for thousands of years, making it a timeless choice for rug enthusiasts.

Similarly, the captivating red color in this rug is achieved through a natural dye derived from madder root. The madder plant, known as Rubia tinctorum, has been cultivated for centuries to create beautiful warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades. Embracing this natural dyeing technique adds a touch of authenticity and elegance to our rug.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162, this rug boasts exceptional craftsmanship. A total of 1,459,362 individual knots have been meticulously hand-tied to create this captivating piece of art. Its size measures 6'6" x 9'8", making it a versatile addition to any space, providing both style and comfort.

Invest in this Afghan masterpiece, sourced directly from the weavers themselves, and bring home the beauty and artistic legacy of a truly magnificent rug.
