Introducing the exquisite Afghani rug with a rich history and captivating design. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the southeast, renowned for its mountainous terrain that yields exceptional quality wool. It is predominantly crafted by skilled weavers from the Esari Subtribe, known for their expertise in creating stunning tribal-style rugs.

The large harshang design of this rug is truly mesmerizing. The background color, reminiscent of slate, beautifully complements the emerald border, creating a harmonious contrast. The main color palette showcases shades of grey, adding depth and character to the overall aesthetic.

This rug has been meticulously handwoven using the traditional floor looms found in the weavers' own homes, emphasizing the importance of cottage industry and preserving craftsmanship. The use of the asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique ensures durability and longevity, making it an excellent investment for any space.

To create this masterpiece, the weavers employ cotton warp and weft, while the pile is made entirely out of wool, sourced from the Ghazni Province. The wool undergoes a meticulous process that begins with hand carting and spinning near Herat, in the western part of Afghanistan. The result is a luxurious and high-quality carpet yarn that is ideal for weaving.

What sets this rug apart are the centuries-old natural dye stuffs used in its creation. The weavers carefully select specific organic materials to achieve the vibrant and enduring colors that grace this piece. This dedication to using traditional dyeing techniques adds a unique charm and authenticity to the rug.

Furthermore, the rug boasts a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, which translates to a remarkable 325,134 individually hand-tied knots throughout its composition. This level of intricacy and attention to detail speaks to the exceptional craftsmanship and artistry invested in every thread.

Immerse yourself in the cultural heritage of Afghanistan and bring home a piece of timeless beauty with this Afghani rug. Its tribal charm, remarkable durability, and exquisite design make it the perfect addition to any interior space.
