This contemporary Afghani rug features a lily design with a rust background and an eggplant border, creating a striking and unique combination. Measuring at 9'10" x 13'6", this new rug is made of wool on cotton, ensuring both comfort and durability.

Ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe, are responsible for crafting this exceptional rug. The wool used in its creation is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for producing high-quality wool due to its mountainous terrain. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to Herat, where it undergoes meticulous hand carting and spinning before being transformed into carpet yarn.

In line with traditional production methods, this rug is woven on floor looms in the weavers' homes, following an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type. The double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique results in a remarkably durable handwoven carpet designed to withstand the test of time.

The craftsmanship and attention to detail extend to the dyeing process, as this rug showcases centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs. The captivating red color is derived from madder root dyes, extracted from the roots of the madder plant, scientifically known as Rubia tinctorum. These natural dyes can produce a range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades, adding depth and character to the rug's design.

With a knots per square inch of 104, this rug boasts an impressive 1,973,261 individually hand-tied knots in total, attesting to the intricate artistry involved in its creation. Its intricate design and meticulous craftsmanship make this rug a true work of art.

Whether you are looking for a statement piece for your living room or a striking addition to your office, this contemporary Afghani rug with its lily design and unique color scheme will undoubtedly elevate any space with its timeless beauty. Experience the luxury and artistry of this exceptional rug, meticulously crafted by skilled weavers using traditional techniques handed down through generations.
