Introducing the exquisite Afghani rug with a captivating Khotan Garden design. This traditional rug boasts a background in a calming shade of grey, complemented by a rust-colored border. Crafted using the finest wool on a cotton foundation, this rug radiates a sense of luxury.
Originating from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the southeast, the wool used in this rug comes from sheep nurtured in the region's mountainous terrain. This natural environment ensures the production of longer-staple, oily wool of superior quality, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and spinning into carpet yarn.
Weavers from the Esari Subtribe, known for their exceptional craftsmanship, employ traditional floor looms in their own homes to create this masterpiece. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique is employed, resulting in a durable and long-lasting rug. The cotton warp and weft provide a sturdy foundation for the lush all-wool pile.
This rug is a testament to the centuries-old tradition of using all-natural dye stuffs in the dyeing process. The outcome is a vibrant and harmonious color palette that will enhance any interior space.
With a size of 9'4" x 12'3" and a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug possesses an astounding 1,301,185 individually hand-tied knots. Such meticulous craftsmanship ensures its longevity and ability to withstand the test of time.
Immerse yourself in elegance with this Afghani rug, an exquisite piece meticulously crafted by skilled weavers and dyed using natural materials. It is the perfect addition to elevate any space with its luxurious design and undeniable allure.
