Introducing the exquisite Afghani rug with a Karaja design, we proudly present a marvelous piece crafted with utmost precision and artistry. Originating from Afghanistan, this rug showcases the tribal style, portraying a rich cultural heritage. The background color of this rug is a striking platinum, while the border possesses an enchanting seafoam hue. The overall impression is one of sophistication and elegance.
Meticulously handcrafted by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug is a testament to their exceptional craftsmanship. The wool used in its creation is sourced from the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, renowned for its mountainous terrain that produces long-staple, oily, and high-quality wool, ideal for carpet weaving.
The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western region of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is diligently hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn, ready to undergo the weaving process. Using traditional floor looms in their own homes, these skilled artisans employ asymmetrical "Persian" knotting techniques, resulting in a distinctive and visually captivating pattern.
With a cotton warp and weft, this rug features a woolen pile, offering a luxurious texture that is both soft and durable. The double weft and heavily packed, depressed warp weaving technique contribute to the rug's exceptional durability, ensuring that it will withstand the test of time.
To enhance its allure, centuries-old natural dye stuffs are utilized to infuse vibrant colors into every intricately woven detail. Each shade embodies the organic beauty of the dye sources, further adding to the rug's overall charm.
Measuring 5'11" in width and 9'4" in length, this rug is an impressive addition to any space. With a knot count of 80 knots per square inch, we have meticulously calculated that this rug boasts a remarkable total of 628,467 individually hand-tied knots. This serves as a testament to the skill and dedication of the artisans who have poured their expertise into its creation.
Embrace the allure of this Afghani masterpiece, as it brings a touch of elegance and cultural heritage to your home.
