The craftsmanship of this rug truly shines through in its origin. It is woven by ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly hailing from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug is sourced from the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain provides sheep with longer staple oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving. This raw Ghazni wool is then brought to the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, where it is meticulously hand carted and spun into carpet yarn.
Utilizing traditional floor looms, this rug is woven in the weavers' own homes, showcasing a cottage industry production style. The knot used is an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, adding to the rug's authentic charm. The foundation of this rug is composed of cotton warp and weft, with a sumptuous all-wool pile.
Drawing inspiration from centuries-old traditions, this rug is dyed using all-natural dye stuffs. The result is a harmonious blend of colors that are pleasing to the eye and made to stand the test of time.
With a luxurious knots per square inch (KPSI) count of 80, this rug is a testament to the skill and dedication of its weavers. In fact, we have meticulously calculated that this rug boasts an impressive 772,935 individually hand-tied knots in total.
Embrace the elegance and heritage of this Afghani rug, a true masterpiece that exemplifies the superb craftsmanship and rich cultural tapestry of its origin.
