Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring the timeless Harshang design. This tribal-style rug showcases a charcoal background with a charming pink border, creating a captivating contrast. Crafted with care, this rug boasts a new condition and is sure to enliven any space it graces.
Originating from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the southeast region, this rug sources its wool from sheep that roam the mountainous terrain. The resulting longer staple, oily wool is known for its exceptional quality, perfect for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is meticulously hand-carried and spun into carpet yarn, ready for the weaving process.
Speaking of weaving, this rug is expertly crafted on traditional floor looms, right in the weavers' own homes. Each individual knot is skillfully tied using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, ensuring the rug's durability and longevity. With a cotton warp and weft, and a wool pile, this rug's construction is a testament to the skillful craftsmanship of the Afghan people.
To add to its appeal, this rug features centuries-old, all-natural dyes, lending it a rich and authentic aesthetic. The combination of its intricate design and the deep understanding of color harmonies showcased in the dyeing process make this rug a true masterpiece.
Measuring at 4'11" x 6'9", this rug is the perfect size to complement a variety of spaces. With 80 knots per square inch, it possesses an impressive level of intricacy. In fact, based on the calculated KPSI (knots per square inch), this rug proudly displays a grand total of 377,698 individually hand-tied knots.
Experience the allure and beauty of this Afghani Harshang rug, a true testament to the soulful craftsmanship and rich heritage of Afghanistan. Bring a touch of tribal elegance into your home with this exceptional piece.
