Introducing a stunning and unique rug from Afghanistan, this piece showcases craftsmanship and design that is truly captivating. With its origin hailing from the Afghan region, this rug is an exquisite example of the traditional Harshang design. Embracing a tribal style, it features a rich navy background that beautifully highlights the rust border, creating a striking contrast.
Crafted with utmost care and attention to detail, this rug boasts a composition of wool on cotton, where the wool is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain in this region naturally produces longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool, thus ensuring the exceptional durability and longevity of the rug.
This particular rug is woven by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. They utilize traditional floor looms in their own homes, employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique to create this masterpiece. The double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique adds to the rug's durability, making it one of the sturdiest handwoven carpets available today.
The vibrant blue color, which serves as the main focal point of this rug, is derived from natural indigo dye stuffs. Known as one of the oldest dyes used by humans, indigo has a rich history dating back thousands of years and has been embraced by various cultures for its ability to produce vibrant blue hues.
Measuring at 2'8" x 15'5", this rug showcases a knots per square inch (KPSI) count of 104, resulting in a stunning total of 611,106 individually hand-tied knots. Such meticulous craftsmanship ensures an unparalleled level of quality and intricacy.
Immerse yourself in the cultural heritage and captivating beauty of this Afghani Harshang rug. With its timeless design and exceptional craftsmanship, it will undoubtedly add an element of elegance to any space it graces.
