This Pakistani rug is a beautiful representation of traditional design. With a background color of vibrant red and a border color of deep blue, it exudes a timeless elegance. The design of this rug is inspired by the renowned Haji Jalili style, known for its intricate patterns and exquisite craftsmanship.
Made from high-quality materials, this rug features a new construction with wool on cotton content. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain produces longer staple oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then brought to the western side of Afghanistan for hand carting and spinning into carpet yarn.
Crafted by skilled weavers, this rug is woven on traditional floor looms in people's own homes, following the centuries-old tradition of Afghan carpet weaving. The weaving technique used is an asymmetrical "Persian" knot, ensuring durability and longevity. With a cotton warp and weft and an all-wool pile, this rug is double wefted and heavily packed, resulting in a sturdy and long-lasting construction.
The red color in this rug comes from natural madder root dyes, derived from the roots of the madder plant. Madder root dyes have been used for centuries and can produce warm and cool shades of red, orange, pink, and brown. The blue color is achieved through natural indigo dyes, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant. Indigo has a rich history dating back thousands of years and is known for its vibrant blue hues.
Measuring 12'0" X 16'3", this rug has a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162, with a total of 4,529,041 individually hand-tied knots. Its size and intricate design make it a stunning centerpiece for any room.
If you are in search of a traditional rug with exceptional craftsmanship and timeless design, this Pakistani rug is a perfect choice. Its combination of vibrant red and deep blue, along with its skilled construction and natural dyes, exemplify the beauty and artistry of traditional rug making.
