Introducing the exquisite Afghani Karaja rug, a magnificent piece of artistry hailing from Afghanistan. This transitional style rug showcases the timeless beauty and craftsmanship of the Afghan Turkmen weavers, particularly those from the esteemed Esari Subtribe.
The background of this rug features a captivating silver hue, while a striking teal border adds a touch of elegance. The overall color palette is dominated by shades of grey, creating a harmonious and soothing atmosphere.
Crafted using the finest materials, this rug boasts a new condition with a content of pure wool on a cotton base. The wool used is sourced from the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, an area known for its mountainous terrain, resulting in long staple, high-quality wool ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then hand carted and spun into carpet yarn in Herat, a city on the western side of Afghanistan.
Meticulously woven on traditional floor looms, this rug showcases an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, further highlighting its authenticity. With a cotton warp and weft and an all-wool pile, the rug's construction is designed for durability. The double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique used ensures that this rug is one of the most durable handwoven carpets in existence.
As a testament to its historical significance, this rug is hand-dyed using centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, adding a touch of authenticity and richness to its colors.
Measuring 6'0" x 8'9", this rug features a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, showcasing the intricate attention to detail in its design. Based on our meticulous calculation, we estimate that this rug has a staggering 597,485 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the skill and dedication of its weavers.
Immerse yourself in the beauty and artistry of this Afghani Karaja rug, a true masterpiece that will bring elegance and charm to any space it graces.
