Introducing our exquisite Afghani Isphahan rug, showcasing a transitional design that seamlessly blends traditional and contemporary elements. Crafted with utmost precision and care, this rug emanates a sense of elegance and sophistication.

Originating from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the southeast of the country, our rug reflects the skillful artistry of ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this masterpiece is sourced from the local sheep, benefiting from the mountainous terrain that naturally produces longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool ideal for carpet weaving.

The journey of this rug begins in Herat, where the raw Ghazni wool is hand carted and spun into luxurious carpet yarn. In the comfort of their own homes, skilled artisans weave this rug on traditional floor looms, following the time-honored techniques passed down through generations. Employing an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and featuring a cotton warp and weft, the rug boasts a wool pile that offers both durability and warmth.

Notably, the Karam Kul district of Andkhoi is known for its skilled weavers, who contribute to the remarkable knot count found in this rug. Each knot is carefully hand-tied, utilizing single-ply pern knot yarn.

The captivating navy background and denim border effortlessly complement the main color scheme of blue, which is achieved through the use of natural indigo dye stuffs. These dyes, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant (indigofera tinctoria), have a rich history spanning thousands of years and have been highly valued for their ability to produce vibrant blue hues.

To truly appreciate the craftsmanship and attention to detail in this rug, it's worth noting its impressive knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162. Through calculations, we have determined that this rug boasts an astounding 1,295,161 individually hand-tied knots in total.

Indulge in the allure and allure of this Afghani Isphahan rug, an exquisite piece that seamlessly blends heritage and contemporary aesthetics. Add a touch of luxury and elegance to your living space with this exceptional work of art.
