Introducing a stunning rug that exudes elegance and charm, we present to you a one-of-a-kind, contemporary fairy tale design. Originating from Afghani weavers, this rug showcases a beautiful, thin fairy with graceful, curvy lines and enchanting red butterfly wings. As you gaze upon this masterpiece, you'll notice a heavenly display of red butterflies fluttering around the fairy shown in profile.

Crafted with meticulous care, this rug features an ivory background that provides a soothing backdrop for the vibrant red butterflies. The border, adorned in a mesmerizing shade of blue, beautifully complements the overall design. Made using a combination of wool on cotton, this rug ensures a luxurious and comfortable feel underfoot.

In terms of size, this ethereal rug measures 5'0" x 6'7", making it the perfect addition to any space seeking a touch of whimsy and refinement.

Moving on to another captivating piece, we introduce a rug handwoven by ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep inhabiting the mountainous terrain of the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan. Due to the natural conditions, this wool possesses a longer staple and higher quality for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to Herat on the western side of Afghanistan, where it undergoes the traditional process of being hand carted and hand spun into carpet yarn.

The weaving of this rug takes place in the weavers' own homes, adopting a cottage industry approach on traditional floor looms. Using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft (with an all wool pile), this rug epitomizes durability and longevity. The double wefting, along with the heavily packed depressed warp weaving, ensures the highest quality craftsmanship that stands the test of time.

Adding to the authenticity and timelessness of this rug are the centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs used in its creation. The stunning colors are achieved through the use of natural indigo dye stuffs derived from the leaves of the indigo plant. Known as indigofera tinctoria or true indigo, this dye has been used by humans for thousands of years, resulting in vibrant blue hues that are as captivating as they are rich.

Now, let's take a closer look at a rug that showcases the artistry and skill of Aqucha and Mazar Sharif weavers. These exceptional creations employ 2-ply yarn per knot, ensuring durability and longevity that can withstand the test of time.

Finally, we present to you a rug that boasts a remarkable 80 knots per square inch. Based on this measurement, our calculations indicate that this exquisite piece features a total of 374,611 individually hand-tied knots. Such intricate detail and craftsmanship make this rug a true work of art, enhancing any space with its beauty and allure.

Experience the magic and artistry of these rugs, each with its unique story and heritage. Embrace the beauty of craftsmanship and allow these rugs to become the centerpiece of your space.
