Introducing our exquisite new rug from Afghanistan, featuring the elegant design of Khotan Garden. This traditional style rug showcases a stunning navy background and a crimson border, adding a touch of sophistication to any space. Crafted from high-quality wool on cotton, this rug offers both durability and a luxurious feel. With a size of 2'7" x 9'7", it is perfect for adding a touch of elegance to hallways or narrow spaces.

This rug is woven by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in its construction is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain contributes to the production of longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then brought to the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, where it undergoes hand carding and hand spinning into carpet yarn. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, reflecting the cottage industry type of production.

The rug employs an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and utilizes cotton warp and weft, with a luxurious all-wool pile. It is double wefted with heavily packed depressed warp weaving, ensuring superior durability and longevity. The use of centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs further enhances the authenticity and richness of this rug.

Notably, this rug features a knot count of 104 knots per square inch, with a total of 367,994 individually hand-tied knots. This meticulous craftsmanship showcases the dedication and expertise of the weavers.

The captivating blue color of this rug is achieved through the use of natural indigo dye stuffs. Indigo, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, has been used for thousands of years to produce vibrant blue hues. Its presence in this rug highlights its timeless beauty and historical significance.

Add a touch of elegance and artistry to your home with this exceptional Afghan rug. Embrace the craftsmanship and authenticity of this stunning piece, knowing that each knot has been meticulously hand-tied with passion and expertise. Create a truly unique and enchanting ambiance by incorporating this magnificent rug into your living space.
