Introducing our exquisite Afghan Lion Mamluk Tribal Rug! This magnificent piece originates from Afghanistan, specifically crafted by skilled weavers in the Esari Subtribe. The design proudly features a captivating lion motif, paying homage to the rich tribal heritage of the region.

With a deep navy background and a striking rust border, this rug effortlessly blends traditional elements with a touch of modernity. The main color of this rug is a vibrant blue, achieved through the use of natural indigo dye stuffs. Derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, this ancient dye has been utilized for thousands of years to create stunning blue hues.

Measuring at an impressive 9'2" x 12'0", this new rug is crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail. The content consists of wool on cotton, ensuring a luxurious and durable foundation. It is woven using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, resulting in a meticulous and intricate design.

The craftsmanship of this rug is truly remarkable, as it is woven on traditional floor looms by the talented weavers in their own homes. The wool used in the creation of this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. This mountainous terrain provides ideal conditions for the sheep to produce longer staple, oily, and higher-quality wool, which is then hand carted and spun into carpet yarn.

Embracing centuries-old techniques, this rug is made with raw Ghazni wool that is hand spun into single ply pern knot yarn. The weaving process incorporates double wefted heavily packed depressed warp, resulting in a remarkably durable and long-lasting masterpiece.

As we calculated the knots per square inch (KPSI) of this rug, we discovered a remarkable 104 KPSI, which indicates the exceptional level of craftsmanship and quality. In fact, our calculations reveal that this rug boasts an astounding 1,635,105 individually hand-tied knots in total!

Immerse yourself in the beauty and heritage of Afghan craftsmanship with this Lion Mamluk Tribal Rug. Adorn your home with this mesmerizing piece that showcases the rich weaving techniques, natural dyes, and impeccable design skills unique to this region. Experience the timeless allure of Afghan rugs and enhance your space with a true work of art.
