Introducing our exquisite afghani rug with a design inspired by the traditional harshang style. This tribal beauty features a medium blue background that creates a soothing atmosphere in any space, complemented by a grape border that adds a touch of elegance.

Handcrafted by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug was meticulously woven using wool sourced from the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain of this region naturally produces longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool, perfect for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then brought to the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, where it undergoes the hand carding and hand spinning process, transforming it into carpet yarn ready for weaving.

Every stitch of this rug was expertly woven on traditional floor looms by the weavers in their own homes, contributing to a cottage industry-type production. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, combined with a cotton warp and weft, ensures its durability. The double wefted technique and heavily packed, depressed warp weaving make this rug one of the most durable and long-lasting handwoven carpets today.

You'll admire the centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs that were used to achieve the stunning blue color in this rug. The dye comes from the leaves of the indigo plant, known as natural indigo or true indigo (indigofera tinctoria). This dye has been used by humans for thousands of years, creating vibrant blue hues that stand the test of time.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 104, this rug boasts an impressive 1,256,983 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the intricate craftsmanship and attention to detail invested in its creation.

Indulge in the beauty and cultural significance of this afghani rug, and let its tribal charm and rich history enhance the atmosphere of your space.
