Introducing our exquisite Harshang Pakistani rug with a distinctive tribal design. This rug features a navy background and a striking rust border, creating a captivating contrast. Made from high-quality wool on a cotton base, this new rug is handcrafted with precision and attention to detail.
Originating from ethnic Turkmen weavers, specifically the Esari Subtribe, this rug showcases the masterful craftsmanship of artisans. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, known for producing longer staple and superior quality wool. After being brought to the western side of Afghanistan, the raw Ghazni wool is hand carted and spun into carpet yarn, ready to be transformed into a work of art.
The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, emphasizing the cottage industry type production. By utilizing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and implementing a cotton warp and weft, this rug achieves optimal durability. The double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique ensures its longevity, making it a truly resilient handwoven carpet.
Our Harshang Pakistani rug also boasts centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs, giving it an authentic and rich palette of colors. The vibrant blue hue in this rug, derived from natural indigo dye stuffs, adds depth and character to the overall design. Indigo, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant, has been used as a dye for thousands of years, making it a timeless choice for creating beautiful blue tones.
With an impressive knots per square inch (KPSI) of 104, this rug showcases the meticulous craftsmanship invested in its creation. In total, we estimate that this rug features a remarkable 550,812 individually hand-tied knots. This attention to detail ensures its unmatched quality and provides a stunning testament to the artistry of the weavers.
Bring elegance and a touch of tribal charm into your home with this Harshang Pakistani rug. Its impeccable craftsmanship, exceptional design, and vibrant palette make it an ideal centerpiece for any room. Own a piece of history and tradition with this exceptional rug.
