Introducing the magnificent rug in question, we have an exquisite piece originating from Afghanistan. This rug showcases the timeless beauty of the Harshang design, known for its tribal style. The background of this rug features a stunning medium blue hue, while the border presents a grass color that complements the overall aesthetic. Crafted using the finest materials, this rug boasts a composition of wool on cotton, ensuring durability and quality.

Measuring at 8 '1 " X 9 '9 ", this rug is a testament to the skill and craftsmanship of the ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily hailing from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in its creation is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. The region's mountainous terrain provides the ideal conditions for producing longer staple wool, renowned for its superior quality. After the raw Ghazni wool is transported to the western side of Afghanistan, it undergoes the meticulous processes of hand carding and hand spinning, resulting in carpet yarn of exceptional caliber.

The weaving of this rug takes place on traditional floor looms, within the comfort of the weavers' own homes. This cottage industry production method allows for a level of attention and care that is unrivaled. Employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, each hand-tied knot reflects the dedication and expertise of the weaver. The warp and weft of this rug consist of cotton, with the wool pile ensuring a luxuriously soft texture. Additional durability is achieved through the double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, guaranteeing a carpet that stands the test of time.

A testament to the rug's rich history and commitment to authenticity, centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs have been used in its creation. In the case of the blue color present in this rug, natural indigo dye stuffs derived from the leaves of the indigo plant have been utilized. Indigo dye has been used by various cultures for thousands of years, resulting in vibrant blue hues that exude timeless charm.

With a remarkable knots per square inch (KPSI) of 104, this rug showcases the intricacy and attention to detail poured into its creation. Based on our calculations, it is estimated that this rug contains a staggering 1,171,507 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the skill and dedication of the weavers.

In conclusion, this exceptional rug combines distinctive Afghani origins, the allure of tribal aesthetics, and the timeless Harshang design. From its carefully sourced materials to its intricate weaving techniques, this rug is a testament to the artistry and craftsmanship that goes into each piece. Immerse yourself in the elegance of this rug, and embrace the history and beauty it brings to any space.
