Introducing our exquisite rug, which hails from Afghanistan, specifically the region known for its skilled weavers and the production of high-quality rugs. This particular rug showcases the traditional Ferahan Sarouk design, featuring a stunning navy background and a sage border that beautifully complements the main color scheme of blue.

Crafted with utmost precision and attention to detail, this rug is made from wool on cotton, ensuring both comfort and durability. Measuring 6'4" x 8'9", it offers ample coverage and can become a centerpiece in any room.

The exquisite craftsmanship of this rug is evident in its intricate patterns and designs, woven using an asymmetrical Persian knot type. Its production involves a fascinating process, starting with the sourcing of wool from sheep in Afghanistan's Ghazni Province. These sheep benefit from the mountainous terrain, which nurtures longer staple oily wool, perfect for carpet weaving.

The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, specifically Herat, where it is meticulously hand-carted and spun into carpet yarn. Skilled weavers working in their own homes or cottage industries utilize traditional floor looms to create the rug's stunning composition.

One of the notable features of this rug is its durability. It boasts double wefted heavily packed and depressed warp weaving, resulting in a long-lasting piece that stands the test of time. Furthermore, centuries-old natural dye stuffs are used to infuse vibrant colors into the rug, with the stunning blue hue cultivated from natural indigo dye.

This magnificent rug embodies quality craftsmanship, boasting a knot per square inch count of 162. Our calculations indicate that it has a total of 1,287,092 individually hand-tied knots, further exemplifying the immense skill and dedication involved in its creation.

Embrace elegance and history with this Afghan masterpiece, a true testament to the rich traditions of rug weaving. Add a touch of sophistication to your space by welcoming this Ferahan Sarouk rug into your home.
