Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, a true masterpiece crafted by talented ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. This stunning rug is a testament to the rich weaving traditions of Afghanistan and showcases the exceptional skills of these craftsmen.

The design of this rug features a large Harshang pattern, a classic tribal motif that adds a touch of authenticity and cultural charm. The background is a deep, lustrous black, serving as the perfect canvas for the intricate design. The border, in a captivating rust shade, beautifully frames the central pattern and adds a vibrant contrast.

Crafted using traditional techniques, this rug is made of wool on a cotton foundation, ensuring both durability and a comfortable feel underfoot. The wool used in this piece comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain yields superior quality wool with longer staple fibers, known for their resilience and sheen.

The production process begins with the raw Ghazni wool being transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat. Here, the wool is meticulously hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn, preserving the integrity and authenticity of this rug. Skilled weavers, often working in their own homes as part of the cottage industry, use traditional floor looms to bring this masterpiece to life.

Featuring an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, this rug boasts exceptional craftsmanship and longevity. The double wefting and heavily packed depressed warp weaving ensure that it withstands the test of time, making it a wise investment for any collector or rug enthusiast.

Adding to its allure, this rug is dyed using centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, resulting in vibrant and enduring colors that maintain their beauty over the years. The vibrant hues and intricate design elements of this rug make it a true work of art that will enhance any space.

Measuring 9'1" x 12'0", this rug offers ample coverage and serves as a statement piece in any room. With a remarkable knot count of 80 per square inch, we calculated that this rug has an extraordinary 1,240,488 individually hand-tied knots in total, reflecting the immense dedication and craftsmanship that went into its creation.

This Afghani rug is a testament to the rich history and cultural heritage of Afghanistan, making it a valuable addition to any collection. Immerse yourself in the artistry and timeless beauty of this unique piece, and let it add warmth, character, and elegance to your space.
