Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug from the Karaja design collection. This tribal-style rug features a captivating combination of a blue background and a sand-colored border, adding a touch of elegance to any space. Crafted by ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug showcases their exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail.

The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain of this region naturally produces longer staple, oily wool, known for its higher quality and durability in carpet weaving. After being brought to the western side of Afghanistan around Herat, the wool is meticulously hand carted and spun into carpet yarn, ready for weaving.

Using traditional floor looms in their own homes, these skilled weavers employ the asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique to create a stunning pattern. With a cotton warp and weft and a wool pile, this rug boasts a double wefting method and a heavily packed depressed warp weaving that ensures its longevity and resilience.

The rich blue color in this rug is derived from all-natural indigo dye stuffs, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. Known as one of the oldest dyes used by humans, indigo has a historical legacy dating back thousands of years and has been cherished for its ability to produce vibrant blue hues.

With a knot count of 80 knots per square inch, our calculations reveal that this remarkable rug boasts a total of 303,488 individually hand-tied knots. This intricate level of detail showcases the dedication and skill of the weavers behind this masterpiece.

Measuring at 2'8" x 10'0", this exceptional rug is a true testament to the artistry and cultural heritage of the Afghani people. Don't miss the opportunity to own a piece of history and bring a touch of elegance to your home with this stunning Karaja design rug.
