Introducing the exquisite and captivating Afghani Karaja Tribal Rug, a true masterpiece of rug weaving artistry. This rug showcases the rich heritage and meticulous craftsmanship of the Afghan Turkmen weavers, particularly those from the Esari Subtribe.
The rug originates from the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that naturally produces longer staple, oilier, and higher quality wool for carpet weaving. The wool used in this rug is sourced exclusively from sheep in this region, ensuring its exceptional quality and durability.
Once the raw Ghazni wool is obtained, it is transported to the western side of Afghanistan near Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and hand spinning to create the carpet yarn. This ensures the finest quality yarn, ready for the intricate weaving process.
Using traditional floor looms, the weavers, often working within the comforts of their own homes or in cottage industry settings, masterfully create this rug using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type. Its cotton warp and weft provide a solid foundation, while the all-wool pile adds luxurious texture and comfort.
This rug boasts a distinct Karaja design, characterized by its tribal motifs and geometric patterns, beautifully blending the rich navy background with a striking green border. The dominant blue hue in this rug is achieved through the use of natural indigo dye stuffs. The ancient art of natural indigo dyeing, dating back thousands of years, results in vibrant and timeless blue shades.
Embodying centuries of tradition, this rug showcases the use of all-natural dye stuffs, ensuring a color palette that will remain true and splendid over time. Its double-wefted, heavily packed and depressed warp weaving technique guarantees exceptional durability, making it an investment piece that will withstand the test of time.
With a size of 6'2" x 8'10" and a notable knot count of 80 knots per square inch, this rug boasts a remarkable total of 619,931 individually hand-tied knots. Its superior craftsmanship and attention to detail make it a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
