Introducing a magnificent Afghan Harshang tribal rug, showcasing exquisite craftsmanship and timeless elegance. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically crafted by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari subtribe. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep living in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain produces long staple, oily wool of superior quality, ideal for carpet weaving.

The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes a meticulous process. It is hand-carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn, ready for weaving. The intricate patterns and design of this rug are brought to life on traditional floor looms, found in the weavers' own homes. The weaving process is a cottage industry, ensuring great attention to detail and a personal touch in every fiber.

This Afghani Harshang rug features an alluring silver background, beautifully contrasted by a vibrant blue border. The main color of this rug is a sophisticated shade of grey, adding a touch of serenity to any space. The design of the rug follows a tribal style, exuding a rustic charm that is both captivating and authentic.

Crafted using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug displays an impressive knot count of 80 knots per square inch. The impeccable durability of this handwoven masterpiece can be attributed to its double wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique. Carefully dyed with centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, this rug boasts rich, lasting colors that have stood the test of time.

With dimensions of 11'9" x 17'7", this remarkable rug provides an expansive canvas for its intricate design to unfold. Every inch of this rug is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, resulting in a total of 2,351,288 individually hand-tied knots.

The elegant blue hues in this rug are derived from natural indigo dye stuffs. Indigo, obtained from the leaves of the indigo plant, has been used for thousands of years to produce vibrant blue dyes. This rug showcases the timeless beauty and cultural significance of natural indigo dyeing.

Immerse yourself in the captivating beauty of this Afghan Harshang tribal rug. Adorn your space with a piece of art that transcends time, combining the rich heritage of Afghan craftsmanship with the allure of traditional design. This rug is a true testament to the mastery and artistry of Afghan rug weavers.
