Introducing our exquisite Afghani Harshang tribal rug, a true masterpiece of craftsmanship and design. This rug comes from the rich heritage of Afghan rug weaving and showcases the traditional Harshang pattern.

The rug features a mesmerizing platinum background that beautifully complements the striking blue border. Its main color is a captivating shade of grey, creating a sophisticated and timeless appeal.

Crafted with utmost attention to detail, this rug is made using all-natural materials. The wool used for its pile comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for its high-quality and long-staple wool. The weavers mostly belong to the Esari Subtribe, who meticulously hand-cart and hand-spin the Ghazni wool into carpet yarn.

Using traditional floor looms in their own homes, the skilled weavers create this masterpiece with an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type. The warp and weft are made of cotton, ensuring durability and strength for generations to come.

The vibrant colors of this rug are achieved through centuries-old natural dye stuffs. For example, the captivating blue hue is achieved using natural indigo dye, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. This age-old dyeing technique imparts a deep and rich blue color that has been cherished by cultures worldwide for thousands of years.

Measured at an impressive size of 10'1" x 13'5", this rug boasts a remarkable knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. Based on the KPSI, we have calculated that this rug possesses a staggering 1,539,629 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the intricate and meticulous workmanship dedicated to its creation.

Elevate your space with the timeless beauty and cultural significance of this Afghani Harshang tribal rug. Imbued with history and crafted with care, it is sure to be a cherished addition to any collector's or connoisseur's rug collection.
