Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring a large harshang design, showcasing the authentic tribal style. With a captivating navy background and a soothing sage border, this rug brings a touch of elegance to any space.

Crafted in Afghanistan by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari subtribe, this rug is a true testament to their expertise. Made from high-quality wool sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province, renowned for its mountainous terrain and longer staple oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then carefully transported to Herat, where it undergoes meticulous hand carting and spinning into carpet yarn.

Woven on traditional floor looms, in the weavers' own homes, this rug is a product of cottage industry type production, ensuring authenticity and craftsmanship. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type is used, while a cotton warp and weft provide a sturdy foundation for the wool pile. The double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique ensures the utmost durability, making this rug a prized possession that will withstand the test of time.

Adding to its charm, this exquisite rug boasts centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs, creating a rich and vibrant color palette. The captivating blue hues in this rug are derived from natural indigo dye stuffs, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. Indigo, one of the oldest known dyes, has been used by humans for thousands of years to produce stunning shades of blue.

Measuring 8'3" x 9'9", this rug features 80 knots per square inch, resulting in a grand total of 915,432 individually hand-tied knots. Each knot is meticulously crafted, enhancing the overall beauty and intricacy of this masterpiece.

Embrace the charm of this Afghani rug, a true testament to the skilled craftsmanship and traditional techniques passed down through generations. Enhance your space with this timeless piece of art, a perfect blend of history, culture, and exceptional craftsmanship.
