Introducing our exquisite Afghan Heriz tribal rug, crafted with precision and passion by skilled Turkmen weavers. Sourced from the Esari Subtribe, this rug is a testament to their expertise and dedication.

Originating from Afghanistan, a country renowned for its rich rug-making tradition, this Afghan Heriz rug combines the ancient artistry of tribal designs with the vibrant colors of the region. The background boasts a captivating shade of red, symbolizing energy and passion, while the ivory border adds a touch of elegance.

The construction of this rug showcases the meticulous craftsmanship of the weavers. The wool used in its creation is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain of this region naturally produces longer staple, oily wool, which is ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to Herat, where it undergoes the delicate process of hand carding and spinning into carpet yarn.

Woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, this rug is a testament to the cottage industry type production that has been upheld for generations. Using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, the weavers expertly create a durable and visually striking piece. The cotton warp and weft provide a sturdy foundation, while the all-wool pile ensures a luxurious and comfortable feel underfoot.

The color palette of this rug is enriched by the use of all-natural dye stuffs. The captivating red hue, derived from madder root dyes, adds warmth and depth to the overall design. Madder root dyes have been revered for centuries, cultivated in various parts of the world. With their ability to produce a range of red, orange, pink, and brown shades, these dyes create a harmonious and timeless aesthetic.

Measuring at 8'0" x 9'9", this Afghan Heriz rug boasts a density of 80 knots per square inch (KPSI). Through meticulous calculation, we have determined that this piece is comprised of an astonishing 887,692 individually hand-tied knots. This attention to detail ensures both the durability and longevity of this magnificent rug.

Immerse yourself in the cultural heritage of Afghanistan with this extraordinary Afghan Heriz tribal rug. Its vibrant colors, traditional design, and meticulous craftsmanship make it a truly one-of-a-kind piece that will elevate any space it graces.
