Introducing our remarkable Afghani Heriz Tribal Rug, a true marvel of craftsmanship and design. This rug hails from the beautiful country of Afghanistan, known for its rich weaving traditions and exceptional rug-making techniques.

The rug showcases a captivating combination of colors and patterns. Its elegant grey background and striking blue border create a visually stunning contrast, while the intricate tribal design adds an element of cultural significance.

Made from high-quality materials, this rug features a wool pile on a strong cotton warp and weft. The wool used in its creation comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province, which is renowned for producing long-staple, oily wool ideal for carpet weaving.

Crafted by skilled Turkmen weavers, mostly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug is a testament to their expertise and dedication. These master artisans bring the raw Ghazni wool to the western side of Afghanistan, where it is carefully hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, reflecting the rich heritage of cottage industry production.

Using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, each knot is crafted with precision and care. The double-wefted technique, combined with the heavily packed, depressed warp weaving, ensures that this rug is not only visually stunning but also incredibly durable. It is a testament to the centuries-old traditions of handwoven carpets.

For lovers of natural dyes, this rug's blue hue is derived from natural indigo dye stuffs. Indigo, obtained from the leaves of the indigo plant, has been used for thousands of years to produce vibrant blue colors in various cultures worldwide. Its use in this rug adds a touch of timeless beauty and authenticity.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug showcases meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail. In fact, we have calculated that it boasts a total of 987,904 individually hand-tied knots. Such intricacy and dedication in its creation make this rug an exquisite piece of art for any space.

Experience the allure and beauty of our Afghani Heriz Tribal Rug, a true testament to the craftsmanship and artistry of Afghan rug-making traditions. Add this rug to your collection and embrace the history and cultural significance it brings to your home or office space.
