Introducing this exquisite rug from Afghanistan, its origin adds a touch of authenticity and cultural significance. Meticulously crafted by skilled weavers, mostly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug showcases the traditional design of the Mamluk style with a transitional twist.

The dominant background color of this rug is a rich and vibrant red, which adds warmth and depth to any space it adorns. The border, elegantly adorned in a camel hue, complements the red background beautifully.

Made from high-quality materials, this rug features a new condition with a blend of wool on cotton. Its size measures 5'1" by 6'7", making it versatile enough to fit into various areas of your home.

The intricate craftsmanship of this rug is palpable, thanks to the skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers who have honed their artistry over generations. The wool used in creating this masterpiece originates from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for their longer staple oily higher-quality wool.

To bring this rug to life, the raw Ghazni wool is brought to the western side of Afghanistan, where it undergoes a meticulous process of being hand carted and hand spun into carpet yarn. The weaving takes place on traditional floor looms, often within the weavers' own homes, showcasing the close-knit cottage industry that forms the backbone of rug production in the region.

The detailed weaving technique used in this rug is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, contributing to its enduring quality. With a cotton warp and weft and an all-wool pile, this rug is double wefted, ensuring durability and longevity.

Notably, this rug features centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs, with the captivating red color obtained from natural madder root dyes. Cultivated for centuries, madder root dyes offer a wide range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades, showcasing the rich history and heritage of this dyeing technique.

To highlight the skill and dedication poured into creating this rug, it boasts an impressive knots per square inch count of 162. Our meticulous calculations show that this rug contains a remarkable total of 777,250 individually hand-tied knots.

Embrace the artistry, heritage, and timeless beauty of this Afghan rug, a true treasure that will bring elegance and sophistication to any space it graces.
