Introducing our exquisite Afghan Mamluk Tribal Rug, a stunning piece handcrafted by skilled weavers from the Esari Subtribe in South East Afghanistan. This rug showcases the timeless beauty of the Mamluk design, known for its geometric patterns and intricate motifs.

The background of the rug is crafted in a captivating denim hue, complemented by a rust-colored border. The main color scheme revolves around a rich and alluring blue, achieved through the use of natural indigo dye stuffs sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. This ancient dyeing technique creates a truly vibrant and enduring color.

Crafted with utmost care and attention to detail, this rug is made using high-quality raw wool from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Afghanistan. This region's mountainous terrain provides an ideal environment for sheep to produce long-staple, oily wool, which is essential for superior carpet weaving. The wool is then hand carted and hand-spun into carpet yarn, ready to be woven on traditional floor looms.

Employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug boasts a dense pile of wool on a cotton warp and weft. The double wefted construction and heavily packed depressed warp weaving make this rug exceptionally durable, ensuring it withstands the test of time.

In terms of craftsmanship, this Afghan Mamluk Tribal rug showcases the skill of weavers from the Karam Kul district of Andkhoi, who are renowned for their expert weaving techniques and higher knot count. The rug is meticulously woven with hand-spun single ply pern knot yarn, adding to its overall quality and durability.

Measuring at 8'2" x 10'5", this rug exhibits a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 104, resulting in a total of an impressive 1,264,527 individually hand-tied knots. These intricately tied knots signify the meticulous nature of the weaving process and the attention to detail that goes into creating this masterpiece.

Delve into the captivating world of Afghan craftsmanship with our Afghan Mamluk Tribal Rug, a true testament to the artistry and heritage of rug weaving.
