Introducing the exquisite Afghani Karaja tribal rug, a stunning piece that showcases the rich craftsmanship and traditional techniques of the ethnic Turkmen weavers. This rug originates from the Esari Subtribe and is intricately designed with a karaja pattern.
The background of this rug features a captivating rust color, complemented by a vibrant blue border. The main color of this rug is a striking red, adding a bold and captivating element to its design. Crafted using wool on cotton, this rug boasts a durable and high-quality construction.
Measuring at 2'9" x 15'1", this rug is the perfect addition to any space that craves a touch of elegance and cultural richness. Its asymmetrical "Persian" knot type enhances the overall intricacy of the design.
Our rug is woven by skilled artisans using traditional floor looms in their own homes, contributing to the cottage industry production prevalent in this region. The Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan provides the raw wool, known for its longer staple length and high-quality properties. After being hand carted and spun into carpet yarn around Herat, the weaving process begins.
The use of centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs further adds to the authenticity and unique charm of this rug. The mesmerizing blue color is derived from natural indigo dye, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. Similarly, the red tones are obtained from madder root dyes, historically cultivated for centuries and known for producing a wide range of warm and cool shades.
With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug showcases impeccable craftsmanship. In fact, our calculations estimate that this rug features an impressive total of 472,059 individually hand-tied knots.
