Introducing our unique Afghan Mamluk Candy Stripe Rug, a timeless piece that captures the essence of transitional design. This rug boasts a light blue background with a captivating rust border, creating a striking contrast that will elevate any space. Its main color of blue adds a touch of serenity and tranquility to your room, making it the perfect addition to create a calming atmosphere.

Crafted by ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug showcases their exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for its mountainous terrain that naturally produces longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool for carpet weaving.

This rug is hand-woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, representing a cottage industry type production. Using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot, the weavers meticulously create this stunning piece. The wool pile is woven onto a cotton warp and weft, resulting in a double-wefted and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique that guarantees durability and longevity.

What sets this rug apart is its centuries-old, all-natural dye made from indigo plant leaves. Indigo is one of the oldest known dyes used by humans, dating back thousands of years. Its vibrant blue hues add depth and richness to the rug, showcasing the weavers' commitment to using traditional techniques and materials.

With an impressive knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162, this rug is meticulously hand-tied, resulting in 2,537,118 individually crafted knots in total. This attention to detail ensures the highest level of quality and craftsmanship.

Whether you're looking to add character to your living room, bedroom, or office space, this Afghan Mamluk Candy Stripe Rug is the perfect choice. Its transitional style seamlessly blends traditional and contemporary elements, providing versatility to suit any interior design.

Transform your space today with this exceptional Afghan rug, handcrafted by skilled weavers and meticulously made to adorn your home with timeless beauty and elegance.
