Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, showcasing a large Harshang design adorned with a tribal flair. This stunning piece features an emerald background beautifully paired with a captivating blue border. Crafted with expert precision, this rug is an exquisite manifestation of Afghan craftsmanship.
Originating from the fertile land of Afghanistan, this rug is a testament to the skillful weavers of the Esari subtribe. Their meticulous artistry shines through in every detail of this masterpiece, making it a truly remarkable addition to any space.
Made from the finest wool sourced from the mountainous terrain of the Ghazni Province, this rug boasts longer staple fibers that lend it a luxurious and durable quality. The raw Ghazni wool is carefully brought to the western side of Afghanistan, where it undergoes expert hand carding and spinning in preparation for weaving.
Using traditional floor looms in the comfort of their own homes, the skilled weavers employ the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type to create the intricate patterns on this rug. The cotton warp and weft provide a sturdy foundation, while the wool pile ensures a soft and comfortable feel underfoot.
Double-wefted and woven with a heavily packed depressed warp technique, this rug exhibits unparalleled durability and longevity. It is meticulously crafted to withstand the test of time, making it a cherished heirloom that can be passed down through generations.
The timeless beauty of this rug is further enhanced by the use of centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs. The blue hues that adorn this piece are derived from natural indigo dye, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. This ancient dye has been used for thousands of years to create vibrant blue shades, adding a sense of history and depth to this remarkable rug.
With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug showcases the remarkable level of detail and precision put into its creation. We take immense pride in sharing that our expert calculations estimate a staggering total of 608,548 individually hand-tied knots in this remarkable piece.
Measuring 5'10" x 9'2", this Afghani rug is an investment in both style and craftsmanship. The combination of its luxurious materials, intricate design, and thoughtful construction make it a standout piece that will add elegance and character to any space.
