Presenting the exquisite and intricately handcrafted Afghani Herati Tribal Rug, a true marvel for rug enthusiasts. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically from the Ghazni Province in the southeast, renowned for its mountainous terrain that yields superior quality wool for carpet weaving.

The design of this rug showcases the classic Herati pattern, featuring a captivating combination of graphite background and an enchanting ivory border. The overall color scheme exudes a sense of elegance and sophistication, with shades of grey dominating the main color palette.

Crafted with utmost precision and care, this rug is a testament to the skill and expertise of ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The Ghazni wool, sourced from local sheep, undergoes a meticulous process starting with hand carding and spinning in Herat before being transformed into carpet yarn. The weaving process follows a traditional approach, with each rug being meticulously crafted on floor looms in the weavers' own homes, resembling a cottage industry.

Employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug exhibits remarkable durability, thanks to its double-wefted, heavily packed, and depressed warp weaving technique. These age-old methods, along with the use of all-natural dye stuffs, contribute to the longevity and authenticity of this masterpiece.

Measuring at an impressive size of 8'11" x 11'7", this gorgeous rug showcases a knot density of 80 knots per square inch, reflecting the intricate detail and craftsmanship involved. Evidently, this rug boasts an astounding total of 1,175,450 individually hand-tied knots, a true testament to the dedication and skill of the weavers.

Immerse yourself in the rich history and cultural heritage of Afghanistan with this Afghani Herati Tribal Rug. Whether adorning a traditional or contemporary space, this rug is sure to captivate and elevate any room with its timeless beauty and undeniable charm.
