Introducing the magnificent Harshang Design Afghani Rug, a true treasure from the heritage of Afghanistan. This tribal-style rug features a captivating combination of gold as the background and a teal border, creating a stunning contrast that enhances any space it graces.

With its origins in Afghanistan, specifically from the Esari subtribe, this rug showcases the exquisite craftsmanship of Turkmen weavers. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. This mountainous terrain provides the ideal conditions for the production of longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool, perfect for carpet weaving.

The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes a meticulous process. Hand carting and hand spinning transform the wool into carpet yarn, ready to be crafted into the masterpiece that is this rug.

The rug is woven on traditional floor looms by skilled artisans who work from the comfort of their own homes, contributing to the cottage industry type production. It employs an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and utilizes a cotton warp and weft, while the pile is made entirely of wool.

To ensure its durability and longevity, this rug is double wefted and features a heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, making it one of the most resilient handwoven carpets available today.

Adding to its allure are the centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs used in the rug's creation. These dyes infuse the rug with rich, authentic colors that have stood the test of time.

Measuring an impressive 9'11" x 13'7", this new rug is crafted with care and precision from wool on cotton, providing both comfort and longevity. Its knot count is 80 knots per square inch, resulting in a total of approximately 1,532,993 individually hand-tied knots.

Indulge in the exquisite beauty and cultural heritage of Afghanistan with this Harshang Design Afghani Rug. Immerse yourself in its elegance, warmth, and unmatched craftsmanship.
