Introducing the remarkable Afghani rug, adorned with the exquisite Karaja design, providing an enchanting transition between different styles. This stunning rug features a silver background, beautifully complemented by an olive border, creating a captivating contrast.

Hailing from Afghanistan, specifically from the ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, every detail of this rug showcases the exceptional craftsmanship. The wool used in this masterpiece is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, renowned for its mountainous terrains that naturally yield longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool, perfect for carpet weaving.

The rug's production begins with the raw Ghazni wool being transported to the western side of Afghanistan near Herat. Here, it is meticulously hand carded and spun into carpet yarn, prepared for weaving. The weaving itself takes place on traditional floor looms, predominantly in the comfort of the weavers' own homes, emphasizing the cottage industry-style production.

Using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug embodies durability and longevity. The warp and weft are made of cotton, while the plush pile is crafted entirely from wool. The thoughtful double wefting technique, along with the heavily packed depressed warp weaving, ensures this handwoven carpet is among the sturdiest and most enduring of its kind.

With a rich history that spans centuries, the colors of this rug are achieved through the use of all-natural dye stuffs, ensuring its authenticity and traditional appeal.

The rug's dimensions measure 6'3" in width and 9'3" in length, making it a versatile and sizable addition to any space. Its knots per square inch (KPSI) is a remarkable 80, resulting in a total of 657,944 individually hand-tied knots.

Experience the allure of this Afghani Karaja rug, an exquisite blend of Afghan craftsmanship and timeless design.
