Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring a captivating Mamluk design with a tribal touch. This rug boasts a teal background that beautifully complements the rust-colored border, creating a stunning visual contrast. Crafted with precision and care, this new rug is made of wool on cotton, ensuring both comfort and durability.
Originating from the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, the wool used in this rug comes from sheep raised in the region's mountainous terrain. This natural habitat provides the perfect environment for producing longer staple, oily, and high-quality wool, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then brought to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is carefully hand carted and spun into carpet yarn.
Each rug is skillfully woven on traditional floor looms, often in the weavers' own homes or as part of a cottage industry type production. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type is employed, further enhancing the rug's character and quality. With a cotton warp and weft and a wool pile, this rug showcases exceptional craftsmanship.
Notably, the double-wefted technique and a heavily packed, depressed warp weaving result in a rug that is remarkably durable. This time-honored method ensures that our handwoven carpets can withstand the test of time.
To add to its allure, this rug is adorned with century-old, all-natural dye stuffs, enhancing its authenticity and charm. Expertly woven with 80 knots per square inch, our rug boasts an impressive total of 307,278 individually hand-tied knots. This labor-intensive process creates a masterpiece that radiates elegance and sophistication.
Experience the beauty and craftsmanship of this Afghani rug, a true testament to the skill and dedication of the ethnic Turkmen weavers. With its unique design, vibrant colors, and exceptional quality, this rug will undoubtedly enhance any space it graces. Welcome the charm of tradition and the allure of fine craftsmanship into your home with this remarkable piece.
