Introducing the exquisite Afghani rug, we proudly present a timeless piece of artistry. This rug features a large Harshang design, showcasing its tribal style and capturing the essence of Afghan culture. The background is beautifully presented in black, contrasting elegantly with the sage border.

With a size of 9'0" x 11'10", this rug offers a generous space to enhance any room.
Its origins can be traced back to the skilled Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari subtribe. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for its enchanting mountains, which naturally produce longer staple, oily, high-quality wool ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and hand spinning into carpet yarn.
Woven on traditional floor looms, this rug exemplifies the dedication and craftsmanship of the weavers, who take pride in their cottage industry-type production. Utilizing an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft (with an all-wool pile), this rug achieves exceptional quality. Its double-woven structure, featuring a heavily packed, depressed warp weaving, ensures unrivaled durability.
This rug epitomizes the use of centuries-old, all-natural dye substances, producing enchanting and rich hues that stand the test of time. Its mesmerizing palette is a testament to the artistry involved in creating this masterpiece.
Most similar rugs are woven in Aqucha and Mazar Sharif, utilizing a 2-ply yarn per knot technique. Our rug boasts a remarkable 80 knots per square inch, resulting in an impressive total of 1,212,037 individually hand-tied knots. This showcases the meticulous attention to detail and the dedication of the weavers to create such a breathtaking work of art.
Imbued with the richness of Afghan heritage and artistry, this Afghani rug is a true testament to the skill and craftsmanship of the weavers. Its tribal design, high-quality materials, and impeccable construction ensure that this rug will bring charm and elegance to any space it adorns. Embrace the allure of Afghan culture with this magnificent rug.
