Introducing the exquisite Afghani Mamluk Tribal Rug, a true work of art in the world of antique rugs. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically from the Ghazni Province in the southeast, known for its mountainous terrain that produces high-quality wool. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the region, ensuring a longer staple length and luxurious texture.

Crafted by skilled Turkmen weavers, most of whom belong to the Esari Subtribe, this rug is a testament to their expertise and dedication. The wool is carefully hand-carted and hand-spun in the western region of Afghanistan, near Herat. Using a traditional floor loom in their own homes, these weavers create a symphony of colors and patterns.

The design of the rug showcases the timeless Mamluk pattern, which draws inspiration from the ancient artistry of the Mamluk Dynasty. This tribal rug features a rust-colored background that beautifully complements the vibrant blue border. The main color of the rug is a deep red, adding warmth and richness to any space it adorns.

Measuring at 2'7" x 19'3", this rug is compact yet captivating, making it an ideal addition to any room in your home. The pile is composed of wool, woven onto a cotton foundation, ensuring durability and longevity.

With an impressive knot density of 80 knots per square inch, this rug boasts a total of 565,943 individually hand-tied knots. This meticulous craftsmanship guarantees the rug's longevity and sturdiness, making it a true heirloom piece.

The colors used in this rug are derived from natural dyes. The blue hues are produced from natural indigo, an ancient dye derived from the leaves of the indigo plant. Meanwhile, the red shades are created using natural madder root dyes. Madder root, scientifically known as Rubia tinctorum, has been cultivated for centuries and is prized for its ability to produce a range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades.

This Afghani Mamluk Tribal Rug is a testament to the rich cultural heritage and craftsmanship of its creators. Its timeless design, exceptional quality, and natural dyes make it a true collector's piece. Immerse yourself in the artistry and history of this rug, adding a touch of elegance and tradition to your living space.
