Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug! This beautiful piece of art showcases the traditional design of a Heriz sampler, making it a true representation of tribal style. The background of this rug is a mesmerizing shade of teal, while the medium blue border adds a touch of elegance.
Crafted with utmost precision, this rug is a combination of wool on cotton, providing a comfortable and durable foundation for your space. The wool used in its creation is sourced from the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain of this region yields longer staple, oily wool, known for its superior quality in carpet weaving.
The weaving process is a truly authentic one, with the wool being hand carted and spun into yarn around Herat. Skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, particularly from the Esari Subtribe, bring their expertise to this rug. They weave it on traditional floor looms in their own homes, adding a sense of warmth and tradition to each stitch.
Speaking of stitches, the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type is employed in creating the pattern of this rug. The warp and weft consist of cotton, while the all-wool pile adds plushness and sophistication. Additionally, the double wefted technique and heavily packed depressed warp weaving ensure the utmost durability of this handwoven masterpiece.
The color palette of this rug is equally enchanting. The teal main color brings a calming and inviting atmosphere to any room it graces. The vibrant blue hues, achieved through natural indigo dye stuffs, create a timeless charm. Derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, natural indigo dyes have been used for thousands of years around the world, making this rug a link to history.
Measuring at 8'0" x 9'9", this rug is the perfect size to enhance your living space. With a robust knot count of 80 knots per square inch, it showcases the meticulous craftsmanship involved in its creation. In fact, we have calculated that there are an impressive 887,692 individually hand-tied knots in total.
Immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of Afghanistan with this Afghani rug. Its traditional design, durable construction, and vibrant colors make it a sought-after piece for any rug enthusiast. Bring home a touch of tribal elegance with this magnificent work of art.
