Introducing the magnificent Afghani rug! This stunning piece hails from Afghanistan, specifically from the talented Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The rug boasts a captivating design known as Heriz, showcasing its tribal roots.

The background of this rug features a sophisticated charcoal hue, while the border adds a pop of vibrant tangerine, creating a captivating contrast. Its main color is a timeless shade of grey, exuding a sense of elegance.

Crafted with utmost care, this rug is made of high-quality materials. The content consists of wool on cotton, ensuring both comfort and durability. It measures 2'8" by 9'6", perfectly suited to enhance any space.

The production of this rug is a true labor of love. The wool used comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that naturally produces longer staple oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving. This raw wool is transported to Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of being hand carted and spun into carpet yarn.

Adding to its authenticity, the rug is woven on traditional floor looms, often within the weavers' homes, reflecting a cottage industry type of production. The weaving technique used is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, resulting in a structurally sound and visually captivating rug.

Notably, this rug truly stands the test of time due to its double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving. This method contributes to its outstanding durability, ensuring longevity and practicality.

To maintain its original allure, this rug is dyed using all-natural dye stuffs, a tradition that has been passed down for centuries. This ensures that the vibrant colors will continue to shine bright for years to come.

With a remarkable knot density of 80 knots per square inch (KPSI), our meticulous calculations reveal that this rug has an astounding number of 288,313 individually hand-tied knots in total. Each knot showcases the skill and dedication of the weaver, resulting in a true work of art.

Transform your space with the timeless beauty and cultural heritage of this Afghani rug. Its intricate design, superior craftsmanship, and use of high-quality materials make it a true collector's item. Revel in the allure of this exceptional rug and allow it to become the centerpiece of your interior design aesthetic.
