Introducing our exquisite rug from Afghanistan, boasting an elegant Mamluk design and displaying transitional style elements. The background of this rug is celadon, creating a serene and sophisticated foundation for the intricate patterns that adorn it. The striking blue border beautifully complements the main color, which is a rich green hue.

Crafted using traditional techniques, this rug features a new condition and is made of wool on cotton. The wool used in the weaving process is sourced from sheep in the mountainous terrain of the Ghazni Province in South East Afghanistan. This region's natural landscape provides an ideal environment for the production of longer staple, higher quality wool. The raw Ghazni wool is then brought to Herat, where it is meticulously hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn.

The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms, with skilled weavers from the Esari Subtribe primarily responsible for creating these masterpieces. Their expertise and attention to detail result in a symmetrical Persian knot type, ensuring the durability and longevity of the rug. By employing a cotton warp and weft, combined with an all-wool pile, this rug achieves a double wefted construction and depressed warp weaving technique, making it one of the most durable handwoven carpets available.

The dyeing process of this rug involves centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs, sourced from the rich and vibrant color palette found in nature. To achieve the captivating blue shades in this rug, natural indigo dye stuffs are utilized. Indigo, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, has been cherished by cultures around the world for its ability to produce vibrant blue hues. It is one of the oldest known dyes, with a history spanning thousands of years.

The meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail extend to the knot count of this rug. With 162 knots per square inch, our experts have estimated a remarkable total of 1,861,776 individually hand-tied knots in this particular rug, adding to its undeniable allure and artistry.

In summary, this Afghan rug with a Mamluk design and transitional style showcases exceptional handiwork and precision. Its celadon background, complemented by a blue border and a rich green main color, creates an ambiance of elegance and sophistication. With its new condition, wool on cotton content, and durable construction techniques, this rug is a testament to the skill and artistry of the craftsmen who brought it to life. The use of natural indigo dyes further enhances its allure, embodying a timeless beauty and cultural heritage.
