Introducing our exquisite Afghani Harshang tribal rug, with a captivating design that will undoubtedly add character and charm to any space. This particular rug originates from Afghanistan, showcasing the rich craftsmanship of ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe.

Crafted with utmost care and precision, this rug is made from the finest wool sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain of this region naturally produces longer staple, oily wool, which is ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and hand spinning to be transformed into luxurious carpet yarn.

Meticulously woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, this rug showcases the true essence of cottage industry craftsmanship. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type is used, resulting in a sturdy and durable construction. The cotton warp and weft provide a solid foundation for the wool pile, ensuring longevity and resilience.

Imbued with a sense of history, this rug embraces centuries-old natural dye stuffs, creating a harmonious palette. The background color is a serene ivory, while the border features a regal navy tone, perfectly complementing the overall design. The main color scheme is predominantly ivory, offering a versatile and timeless aesthetic that effortlessly adapts to various decor styles.

Measuring at 2'8" x 9'7", this rug is of new condition, ready to grace your chosen space with its elegance. The content of wool on cotton guarantees a sumptuously soft and comfortable texture underfoot, enhancing the overall experience.

With a remarkable knots per square inch count of 104, this rug showcases the skillful weaving of the weavers from the Karam Kul district of Andkhoi. The single-ply pern knot yarn further adds to the intricate detailing and craftsmanship of this masterpiece.

Engrossing statistics reveal that our rug boasts an impressive total of 379,875 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the dedication and artistry poured into its creation.

Add a touch of timeless beauty to your home with this Afghani Harshang tribal rug. Its authenticity, history, and intricate design will undoubtedly become the centerpiece of any room, captivating all who encounter it.
