Introducing our exquisite, afghani rug, featuring a captivating design known as Heriz. This tribal-style rug showcases a mesmerizing combination of colors, with a silver background and a navy border, highlighting the intricate patterns woven into its fabric.

Crafted with the utmost care and skill by ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug is a testament to their artistry. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep residing in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain provides an ideal environment for the growth of longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool that is perfect for carpet weaving.

The raw wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is meticulously hand-carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn, ready to be woven. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' homes, reflecting the cottage industry-type production.

Utilizing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug boasts a cotton warp and weft, with a plush wool pile. Additionally, the double-wefted, heavily packed, and depressed warp weaving technique ensures the utmost durability, guaranteeing that this handwoven masterpiece will stand the test of time.

Adding to its allure, the dyes used in this rug are derived from all-natural sources, showcasing the weavers' commitment to preserving centuries-old dyeing techniques.

Measuring at 6'1" x 8'11", this rug is a true work of art, boasting a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. With our meticulous calculations based on the KPSI, we estimate that this rug features a staggering 617,321 individually hand-tied knots.

Experience the allure and craftsmanship of this afghani Heriz rug, a true testament to the rich weaving traditions of Afghanistan.
