Introducing our exquisite Afghani Mamluk Tribal Rug! This stunning piece originates from Afghanistan, specifically from the Esari Subtribe weavers. The background of the rug is beautifully adorned in a deep navy hue, while the border boasts a captivating rust tone. The mesmerizing design reflects the intricate craftsmanship and cultural heritage of the tribal people.

Crafted with utmost care and precision, this rug showcases the traditional skills passed down through generations. The weavers use wool sourced from the Ghazni Province, known for its mountainous terrain that produces high-quality wool with longer staple fibers. This raw Ghazni wool is transported to the western side of Afghanistan, where it undergoes the hand carding and spinning process to create the finest carpet yarn.

The rug is meticulously woven on traditional floor looms located in the weavers' homes, fostering a cottage industry type of production. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique is applied, further highlighting the authenticity and cultural significance. The foundation of the rug consists of cotton warp and weft, while the pile is made entirely of wool.

A key feature of this remarkable rug is its double wefted construction, ensuring exceptional durability. The heavily packed and depressed warp weaving technique employed in its creation guarantees a resilient and long-lasting masterpiece. The use of centuries-old natural dye stuffs results in enchanting and timeless shades throughout the rug.

The striking blue color in this particular rug is achieved through the utilization of natural indigo dye stuffs. Derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, natural indigo dyes have been employed by various cultures for thousands of years. It is renowned for producing vibrant and captivating blue hues, adding a touch of elegance to this exceptional piece.

Additionally, this rug possesses a remarkable knot density with 104 knots per square inch. By meticulously calculating the knots in each square inch, we estimate that this rug encompasses an impressive total of 356,128 individually hand-tied knots.

Immerse yourself in the rich culture and sophistication embodied by this Afghani Mamluk Tribal Rug. Its impeccable craftsmanship, historical significance, and exquisite design make it a true gem for any discerning collector or connoisseur of fine rugs.
