Introducing our exquisite large Harshang design rug from Afghanistan. This tribal-style rug features a black background with a sage border, creating a striking and elegant look. Crafted by skilled Afghan weavers, this rug showcases the mastery of their craft.
Made with high-quality materials, this rug is woven using wool sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain of this region produces longer staple wool, known for its higher quality and natural oiliness, perfect for carpet weaving.
The wool is carefully hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn in Herat, located on the western side of Afghanistan. The yarn is then meticulously woven on traditional floor looms in private homes, reflecting the cottage industry style of production.
Using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug features a cotton warp and weft, with an all-wool pile. The double wefted technique and heavily packed depressed warp weaving ensure durability, making this handwoven carpet stand the test of time.
Adding to its allure, this rug is dyed using all-natural dye stuffs, which have been used for centuries. The result is a beautifully vibrant and rich color palette that enhances the overall aesthetic of the rug.
Measuring 8'0" x 9'9", this stunning rug has a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. Based on this calculation, it consists of a remarkable 887,692 individually hand-tied knots. Such intricate craftsmanship showcases the dedication and skill of the Afghan weavers.
Embrace the beauty and legacy of Afghan rug weaving with this unique large Harshang design rug. Its captivating design, high-quality materials, and impeccable craftsmanship make it a true masterpiece for any discerning rug collector or interior enthusiast.
