The background of this rug is a stunning peach color, complemented by an ivory border. The main color of this piece is a beautiful beige shade, adding a warm and inviting touch to any space.
Crafted with care, this rug is made of wool on cotton, ensuring both quality and comfort. It measures 8'10" x 11'9" in size, providing ample coverage for your desired area.
The skilled weavers behind this rug are primarily from the Esari Subtribe, known for their expertise in this craft. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where mountainous terrain fosters the growth of longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool.
The wool is then transported to Herat, on the western side of Afghanistan, where it is meticulously hand carted and hand spun into carpet yarn. This traditional process takes place in the weavers' own homes, contributing to the cottage industry type production.
To ensure its durability, this rug is woven on traditional floor looms using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type. The warp and weft of this rug consist of cotton, while the pile is made entirely of wool. The double weft and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique adds to the rug's longevity and resilience.
Embracing its rich history, this rug is made using centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, lending it a timeless charm and authenticity. The intricate craftsmanship and attention to detail can be seen in the 80 knots per square inch (KPSI) of this rug. Calculations indicate that our rug possesses a remarkable 1,181,214 individually hand-tied knots in total.
