Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring the captivating design of Khotan Garden. This traditional-style masterpiece is a testament to the rich craftsmanship and heritage of Afghanistan.
The rug boasts an elegant ivory background with a contrasting navy border, creating a visually striking appeal. The main color palette predominantly consists of ivory, adding a touch of sophistication to any space it graces.
Crafted using a combination of high-quality wool on a cotton base, this rug perfectly embodies the artistry and skill of Afghan weavers. The wool used in this rug originates from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for its mountainous terrain ideal for obtaining longer staple, oily woolâ€”a key factor in producing carpets of exceptional quality. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn, prepared for the weaving process.
Speaking of weaving, this rug showcases the expertise of ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. Every intricate detail on this rug is brought to life using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique, contributing to its unique character. Woven on traditional floor looms, often within the weavers' own homes or as part of a cottage industry, this rug signifies a deep connection to tradition and artistry.
Durability is key when it comes to handwoven carpets, and this rug delivers. Its double-wefted construction with heavily packed depressed warp weaving ensures a sturdy and long-lasting piece that can withstand the test of time.
Adding to the allure of this rug are the centuries-old natural dye stuffs used in its creation. These all-natural dyes contribute to its rich, vibrant colors that are sure to captivate the eye.
Details matter, and our rug measures an impressive 12'1" x 14'10". With 80 knots per square inch and a staggering 2,039,816 individually hand-tied knots in total, this rug showcases the meticulous attention to detail and superb craftsmanship that goes into its creation.
Indulge in the allure of this Afghan masterpiece, an epitome of artistry and tradition. Add a touch of elegance and warmth to your space with this timeless and remarkable Afghani rug, a true testament to the beauty of Afghan craftsmanship.
