Introducing our exquisite Afghan rug, featuring the distinctive Gabbeh design, this tribal-style masterpiece is a true representation of traditional Afghan craftsmanship. Originating from Afghanistan, this rug showcases the rich cultural heritage of the region.

The background of this rug is a captivating navy blue, creating a visually striking canvas for the intricate design to unfold. The border, on the other hand, boasts a serene sky blue, adding a touch of elegance to the overall composition.

Crafted with utmost care, this rug is made using a blend of wool on cotton, ensuring both durability and comfort. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, known for producing superior quality wool due to its mountainous terrain. The wool is then hand-spun into carpet yarn, which is meticulously woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes.

Featuring an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft (all wool pile), this rug exemplifies the attention to detail and sturdy construction of handwoven carpets. The centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs used in this rug's creation further enhance its authenticity and timeless beauty.

Measuring 2'2" X 4'9", this rug is a testament to the skill and artistry of the ethnic Turkmen weavers, particularly those from the Esari Subtribe. Known for their craftsmanship, the weavers from the Karam Kul district of Andkhoi are especially renowned for their higher knot count weaving. With a knots per square inch of 104, we estimate that this rug showcases a remarkable 152,983 individually hand-tied knots in total.

The captivating blue color of this rug is derived from natural indigo dye stuffs. Dating back thousands of years, indigo is one of the oldest known dyes used by humans. Our rug's blue hues have been expertly achieved through the use of natural indigo dyes, also known as indigofera tinctoria or true indigo.

Immerse yourself in the rich history and artistry of Afghan rug weaving with this exceptional piece. Add a touch of cultural elegance to your space with this beautifully designed Afghan Gabbeh rug.
