Introducing the magnificent Ferahan rug from Afghanistan, specifically from the Afghani origin. This traditional-style rug showcases a captivating design, crafted by skilled Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari subtribe.
The Ferahan rug features a soothing beige background adorned with a rich chocolate border, creating an exquisite contrast. Made from high-quality materials, this rug boasts a content of wool on cotton, ensuring both durability and comfort.
Measuring at 3 '0 " x 12'6 ", this stunning rug is newly crafted, embracing the expert craftsmanship of Afghan weavers. Its asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and the usage of centuries-old, all-natural dye stuff contribute to its authentic and timeless appeal.
The wool used in this rug originates from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain helps produce longer staple oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and spinning into carpet yarn.
Woven on traditional floor looms within the weavers' homes, this Ferahan rug exemplifies the cottage industry type production, showcasing the dedication and talent of the Afghan people. With its double-wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, this rug is not only visually stunning but also highly durable.
The Karam Kul district of Andkhoi is known for its skilled weavers, and it is mainly from this region that our Ferahan rug originates. Here, the weavers utilize hand-spun single ply pern knot yarn, displaying their attention to detail and commitment to achieving a high knot count.
Speaking of knot count, our Ferahan rug boasts an impressive 162 knots per square inch. By calculating this, we estimate that there are approximately 870,969 individually hand-tied knots in total, showcasing the meticulous craftsmanship that goes into producing such a masterpiece.
Immerse yourself in the beauty of this Ferahan rug, transporting your space to a realm of elegance and sophistication. Bring the allure of Afghan tradition and craftsmanship to your home with this exquisite piece.
