Introducing our exquisite Afghan Heriz rug! This captivating piece originates from Afghanistan, crafted by talented ethnic Turkmen weavers, mostly from the Esari Subtribe. It showcases the inherent beauty of traditional tribal designs, specifically the Heriz pattern.

The rug boasts a lovely lavender background, which perfectly complements the striking kelly green border. Its main color is a rich shade of purple, creating a visually stunning and harmonious composition. This Heriz rug is affectionately known for its vibrant color palette and intricate motifs, adding an air of authenticity to any space it graces.

In terms of construction, this rug is of the highest quality. The pile is made of 100% wool, sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. This region's mountainous terrain provides ideal conditions for the sheep to grow longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool, which is then hand-spun into carpet yarn. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms, often within the weavers' own homes or cottage industry establishments.

An asymmetrical "Persian" knot type is utilized to create this masterpiece. The warp and weft are composed of cotton, while the lush pile consists of wool. The carpet's exceptional durability is owing to the double-wefted, heavily packed, and depressed warp weaving technique. These centuries-old methods result in a beautifully resilient and long-lasting rug.

With all-natural dye stuffs employed during the dyeing process, this Heriz rug embodies the essence of traditional craftsmanship. The colors are derived from natural sources, ensuring a vibrant palette that will enchant for generations to come.

Measuring an impressive 9'1" x 12'0", this rug is truly a statement piece. Its knots per square inch (KPSI) measure at 80, revealing the meticulous attention to detail bestowed upon each area of this rug. Through our meticulous calculations, we have estimated that this masterpiece showcases a remarkable total of 1,240,488 individually hand-tied knots.

Experience the allure of this Afghan Heriz rug, masterfully crafted by skilled weavers and radiating an enchanting aura of history and tradition.
