Introducing a remarkable Afghani rug with a Karaja design, we present to you a stunning piece of tribal artistry. Originating from Afghanistan, this rug showcases the exquisite craftsmanship of ethnic Turkmen weavers, with a particular emphasis on the Esari Subtribe.

Highlighting a light blue background adorned with a vibrant green border, the main color scheme of this rug is a harmonious blend of blues. Crafted with precision and care, this rug is made using 100% wool pile on a cotton warp and weft, creating a durable and long-lasting masterpiece.

Measuring 2 '9" x 9 '10", this rug is a new addition to our collection, ensuring its pristine condition. The unique design is woven using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, adding depth and intricacy to the overall pattern.

Hand-crafted by skilled artisans, this rug carries with it the rich traditions of Afghan carpet weaving. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province, known for producing high-quality, long-staple, oily wool. The raw Ghazni wool is then hand-spun into carpet yarn in the Herat region, where it is further processed for weaving.

The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, contributing to the cottage industry type production. This rug's durability is enhanced by its double wefted, heavily packed, depressed warp weaving technique, ensuring longevity and resilience.

With a nod to centuries-old traditions, this rug showcases all-natural dye stuffs, resulting in vibrant and enduring colors. The blue tones in this rug are derived from natural indigo dye, obtained from the leaves of the indigo plant, known for its use in producing vivid blue hues.

Exemplifying the weaver's expertise, this rug boasts 80 knots per square inch (KPSI). Through meticulous calculation, we estimate that this rug boasts a remarkable total of 307,751 individually hand-tied knots.

Immerse your space in the rich history and beauty of this Afghani Karaja rug, a timeless piece that will captivate and elevate any interior.
