Introducing the exquisite Afghani rug in the Khotan Garden design. This traditional rug features a delightful combination of a vanilla background and a pink border, adding a touch of elegance to any space. Crafted with care, this rug is made with wool on cotton, ensuring durability and a soft feel underfoot.
Originating from Afghanistan, this rug showcases the artistry of ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug is sourced from the Ghazni Province, known for its mountainous terrain and high-quality wool. The raw Ghazni wool is then brought to Herat, where it is meticulously hand carded and spun into carpet yarn.
Using traditional floor looms, skilled artisans weave this rug in their own homes, resulting in a cottage industry-like production. The rug is woven using asymmetrical "Persian" knots, with a cotton warp and weft supporting the wool pile. The double-wefted and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique ensures the utmost durability.
What makes this rug truly special is the use of centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, creating rich and vibrant hues. You can trust that this rug has been made with care and attention to detail.
Measured at 6'1" x 8'11", this rug is the perfect size to enhance various interiors. With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, we can confidently say that there are approximately 617,321 individually hand-tied knots in this magnificent rug.
Whether you're a collector or simply appreciate the beauty of authentic rugs, this Afghani rug in the Khotan Garden design is a timeless addition to any home or space. Immerse yourself in the rich history and craftsmanship of this remarkable piece.
