Introducing an exquisite rug, we present to you a magnificent piece with an origin from Afghanistan. This rug showcases a stunning design inspired by Mamluk patterns, making it a true transitional masterpiece.

The background of this rug is a soft and elegant taupe, perfectly complemented by a mesmerizing pink border. The main color of the rug is a warm and inviting beige, adding depth and richness to its overall appearance.

Crafted with utmost care and precision, this rug is made using high-quality wool on a cotton foundation. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for producing long staple and oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then brought to the western side of Afghanistan, where it is hand carted and spun into carpet yarn with skilled craftsmanship.

Woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, this rug showcases an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type. The use of cotton warp and weft, along with a double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, ensures its exceptional durability. This rug is a testament to centuries-old traditional methods, with all natural dye stuffs creating its captivating colors.

The skillful weavers, mostly from the Esari Subtribe, put their expertise into each knot, resulting in a remarkable 162 knots per square inch. With our meticulous calculations, we estimate that this item boasts a staggering 1,819,350 individually hand-tied knots in total.

Measuring a generous size of 7'10" x 10'0", this rug is sure to make a statement in any room it graces. Its stunning design, exceptional craftsmanship, and rich cultural heritage make it an extraordinary addition to any collection.
