Introducing this exquisite rug from Afghanistan, featuring a captivating design known as Gabbeh. With its tribal style, this rug showcases a rust background and a stylish gold border that beautifully complements the main color of red. Crafted using high-quality materials, this rug is made of wool on cotton, ensuring a luxurious and durable piece.

Originating from the skilled weavers of the Ethnic Turkmen community, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug is a testament to their expertise. The wool used in this rug comes from the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for its mountainous terrain that produces longer staple oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is meticulously hand carted and spun into carpet yarn.

The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms, often in weavers' own homes or in cottage industries. Using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, the weavers create a remarkable carpet with a cotton warp and weft, while the pile is made entirely of wool. The double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique employed in this rug ensures its exceptional durability, making it an enduring and practical choice.

This rug boasts centuries-old natural dye stuffs, resulting in the vibrant and rich red color. The red dye is derived from the madder plant, scientifically known as Rubia tinctorum. Madder root dyes have a long history of use in various cultures worldwide, producing a range of warm and cool shades, including red, orange, pink, and brown. The use of natural dyes adds an authentic and organic charm to this rug.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 104, this rug showcases the intricate craftsmanship and skill of its weavers. Through meticulous calculations, we have determined that this rug contains 780,388 individually hand-tied knots. Such attention to detail ensures a rug of exceptional quality and artistry.

Embrace the allure and cultural heritage of this Afghan rug, a masterpiece that combines ancient techniques with timeless design. Indulge in the warmth, beauty, and durability that this exceptional piece will bring to your space.
