Introducing our magnificent Afghan Mahal Rug, a true masterpiece that exemplifies the rich heritage of Afghan rug weaving. With an origin rooted in Afghanistan, this rug showcases the intricate craftsmanship and traditional design of the Mahal style.

The background of this rug features a deep navy hue, reminiscent of the night sky, creating a captivating backdrop for the vibrant patterns and motifs. The border, in a soothing celadon shade, beautifully frames the central design, enhancing its overall allure.

Crafted using the finest materials, this rug boasts a wool pile on a cotton foundation, ensuring both its durability and luxurious feel. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, renowned for producing high-quality, longer staple wool ideal for carpet weaving.

The weaving process takes place in the homes of skilled Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, utilizing traditional floor looms. Each knot is meticulously tied in an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, contributing to the rug's impeccable quality.

To further enhance its allure, this rug is dyed using centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs. The captivating blue color, achieved using natural indigo dye, adds depth and vibrancy to the overall design. Indigo dye, extracted from the leaves of the indigo plant, has been cherished throughout history for its ability to produce vibrant blue hues.

Measuring at 8'6" X 9'11", this rug has a knot count of 162 knots per square inch, totaling an astonishing 1,957,752 individually hand-tied knots. This meticulous attention to detail ensures that every inch of this rug is a testament to the skill and craftsmanship of its makers.
