Introducing this exquisite rug from Afghanistan, this piece showcases a stunning transitional design that combines elements of European style. The rug features a denim background, beautifully complemented by a vibrant fuchsia border. Its elegant and timeless design is sure to add a touch of sophistication to any space.
Crafted with care and precision, this rug is made using high-quality materials. The wool used in its creation is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. This region's mountainous terrain naturally produces longer staple oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to Herat, where it is hand carted and hand spun into carpet yarn.
Woven on traditional floor looms, this rug is created by skilled weavers in their own homes, contributing to a cottage industry type of production. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, combined with a cotton warp and weft with an all-wool pile, ensures durability and longevity.
The rug boasts a rich blue color, achieved through the use of natural indigo dye. Natural indigo is derived from the leaves of the indigo plant and has been used for thousands of years to produce vibrant blue hues. This ancient dyeing technique adds a sense of history and authenticity to this remarkable piece.
With a knot density of 80 knots per square inch, this rug exhibits expert craftsmanship. By calculating the KPSI, we estimate that it consists of an astounding 1,197,972 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the meticulous attention to detail put into its creation.
Measuring 8'10" x 11'11" in size, this new rug is a statement piece that will elevate the aesthetic of any room. Its transitional design and vibrant color palette make it a versatile addition to both traditional and contemporary spaces.
