To shed light on the origins of this rug, we turn to the skilled Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug originates from the Ghazni Province in South East Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that encourages the growth of longer staple, higher quality wool. This raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and spinning into carpet yarn.
Using traditional floor looms, these rugs are woven in the weavers' homes, embodying the essence of a cottage industry. The weaving technique employed is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot, known for its strength and durability. The warp and weft of this rug consist of cotton, while the soft and luxurious pile is made entirely of wool.
Continuing the tradition of centuries-old craftsmanship, this rug is dyed using natural, organic materials, resulting in a timeless color palette that will remain vibrant for years to come.
