Introducing a Remarkable Afghani Khotan Rug

Presenting an exquisite rug with a rich cultural heritage, we bring you the Afghani Khotan rug. This traditional beauty draws its origins from Afghanistan, specifically from ethnic Turkmen weavers of the Esari Subtribe. Crafted with utmost care, this rug showcases the timeless craftsmanship of Afghan artisans.

Design-wise, the rug boasts a captivating combination of a lilac background and a multi-colored border, perfectly harmonizing various hues. The main color theme is a vibrant shade of purple that adds a touch of elegance and charm to any space.

In terms of construction, this rug is meticulously handcrafted using wool on cotton, ensuring a durable and long-lasting piece. The wool itself is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, renowned for producing high-quality, longer staple, and oily wool suitable for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to Herat, located in the western part of Afghanistan, where it undergoes the traditional process of hand carding and hand spinning to transform it into carpet yarn.

A testament to the intricate craftsmanship, this rug is woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, showcasing the cottage industry type production prevalent in this region. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type is employed, ensuring that every knot is meticulously tied to create a stunning design.

With a strong foundation, this rug features a cotton warp and weft, providing stability and support for the all-wool pile. The double weft technique and heavily packed depressed warp weaving contribute to the exceptional durability of this handwoven masterpiece.

Adding to its allure, this Afghani Khotan rug is adorned with centuries-old, all-natural dyes, providing a testament to its authenticity and traditional craftsmanship.

Measuring 10'3" x 13'3", this rug presents an expansive size that can transform any room into a space of elegance and sophistication.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, we have meticulously calculated that this rug boasts 1,545,636 individually hand-tied knots. This level of detail signifies the immense effort and expertise invested in creating this remarkable piece.

Immerse yourself in the timeless beauty and rich heritage of the Afghani Khotan rug. Experience the exquisite craftsmanship that seamlessly combines traditional design and exceptional longevity.
