Introducing our exquisite rug from Afghanistan, featuring a captivating Heriz design. This tribal-style rug showcases a rich rust background with a beautiful light blue border. Crafted using traditional techniques by skilled weavers, this rug boasts a combination of wool on cotton, providing both comfort and durability. With a size of 6 '2 " X 8 '8 ", it is the perfect addition to any living space.

Originating from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province, the wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the local region. Known for its longer staple and higher quality, this wool is carefully hand-spun into carpet yarn after being transported to Herat. Ethnically woven by Turkmen weavers, many from the Esari Subtribe, this rug showcases the artistry and skill of the local craftsmen.

Featuring an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and utilizing a cotton warp and weft, this rug is meticulously crafted to ensure durability. The centuries-old tradition of using natural dye stuffs is evident in the vibrant colors of this rug. The mesmerizing blue hues are derived from natural indigo dye, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. Similarly, the warm and captivating red tones are obtained from madder root dyes, which have been used for centuries in various cultures around the world.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug exhibits intricate detailing and precision. By calculating the KPSI, we have determined that this rug boasts an impressive 608,239 individually hand-tied knots. This level of craftsmanship speaks to the skill and dedication of the weavers who brought this rug to life.

Embrace the essence of Afghan heritage with this stunning rug. Its timeless design, coupled with the use of traditional techniques and natural dyes, makes it a true work of art. Add a touch of elegance and cultural significance to your home with this exceptional piece.
