Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring the intricate Khotan vase design. This traditional rug boasts a silver background with a medium blue border, complemented by a main color of grey. Crafted with utmost care, this rug is made using high-quality materials, with a wool pile woven on a cotton warp and weft.

The origin of this piece lies in Afghanistan, specifically in the Ghazni Province, known for its mountainous terrain that produces longer staple, oily wool perfect for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is meticulously hand carded and spun into carpet yarn.

With its asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs, this rug showcases the skills of ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The production takes place within a cottage industry setting, with weavers utilizing traditional floor looms in their homes.

Notably, this rug hails mostly from the Karam Kul district of Andkhoi, renowned for its skilled weavers who excel in achieving higher knot counts. The yarn used in this rug is hand-spun and crafted with a single ply pern knot method.

The captivating blue color of this rug is derived from natural indigo dye stuffs. Indigo, also known as indigofera tinctoria or true indigo, is obtained from the leaves of the indigo plant. Used by humans for thousands of years, it has been a preferred dye among various cultures worldwide, producing vibrant blue hues.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 104, our calculations estimate that this rug consists of an awe-inspiring 1,597,721 individually hand-tied knots. Such meticulous craftsmanship ensures durability and longevity, making it a treasure to behold and cherish.
