Introducing our exquisite Afghani Karaja Tribal Rug, a true masterpiece of craftsmanship and artistry. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically from the Ghazni Province in the southeastern part of the country. The weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, skillfully handcraft these rugs using wool sourced from local sheep in Ghazni.

The wool undergoes a meticulous process, being brought to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is hand-carded and spun into luxurious carpet yarn. The weavers, often working in their own homes as part of a cottage industry, weave the rugs on traditional floor looms. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type is used, ensuring durability and longevity.

In terms of design, this Karaja rug showcases a tribal style with an ivory background and a sky blue border. The main color of the rug is ivory, providing a timeless and elegant aesthetic. The dyes used in this rug are derived from natural indigo, a plant that has been used for centuries to produce vibrant blue hues.

Crafted using a cotton warp and weft, the pile of this rug is made entirely of wool. The double-wefted construction and depressed warp weaving technique contribute to its exceptional durability. Furthermore, the natural dye stuffs used in the coloring process add to its authenticity and charm.

Measuring a generous size of 12'0" x 14'11", this rug boasts a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. Through careful calculation, we have determined that this magnificent piece features a staggering total of 2,037,144 individually hand-tied knots.

In summary, our Afghani Karaja Tribal Rug is a testament to the skill and artistry of the Turkmen weavers in Afghanistan. Its high-quality wool, traditional weaving techniques, natural dyes, and meticulous craftsmanship make it a remarkable addition to any rug collection. Immerse yourself in the rich history and beauty of this exquisite rug, representing the heritage and traditions of Afghanistan.
