Presenting our stunning Afghan Heriz Tribal Rug, a true masterpiece intricately woven by skilled Turkmen Weavers from the Esari Subtribe. Hailing from the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, this rug is crafted using the finest, long-staple, oily wool obtained from sheep thriving in the region's mountainous terrain. This natural wool is known for its exceptional quality, ideal for the art of carpet weaving.
Once the raw Ghazni wool reaches the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, it undergoes meticulous processes. Hand carted and spun into carpet yarn, it is transformed into the foundation for our extraordinary rug. The weaving itself takes place on traditional floor looms, allowing artistry to bloom in the comfort of their own homes, as a testament to the rich heritage of cottage industry craftsmanship.
Employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique, our rug showcases a sturdy structure woven with cotton warp and weft, while its sumptuous pile consists entirely of wool. The remarkable double weft and heavily packed depressed warp weaving method ensure unparalleled durability, making this rug a long-lasting investment that withstands the test of time.
Enveloped in a background of gentle light blue, this Afghan Heriz Tribal Rug exhibits a charming teal border, accentuating its beauty and adding depth to its design. The captivating infusion of various shades of blue, achieved through the use of centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, emanates from the indigo plant's leaves. Natural indigo, known as indigofera tinctoria or true indigo, has been cherished for millennia as one of the oldest and most vibrant blue dyes employed by various cultures worldwide.
With a knot count of 80 per square inch, our Afghan Heriz Tribal Rug offers a testament to the weavers' meticulous artistry and attention to detail. In fact, our calculations indicate an astounding total of 302,537 individual hand-tied knots woven into this magnificent piece.
Capture the essence of Afghan heritage and elevate your space with the mesmerizing beauty of our extraordinary Afghan Heriz Tribal Rug. Experience the cultural richness and undeniable charm it exudes, as it brings a touch of authenticity and elegance to any room it graces.
