Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring the timeless Mamluk design and crafted with a traditional tribal style. This rug boasts a captivating background in a rich teal hue, perfectly complemented by a bold crimson border. The main color of the rug is also teal, creating a harmonious and visually stunning composition.

This rug is made from wool, ensuring a luxurious and durable quality, and is woven onto a cotton foundation for added strength. Its dimensions measure 5'11" x 8'4", making it an ideal size for various interior spaces.

Originating from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the southeast, the wool used in this rug comes from the local sheep known for their longer staple length and high-quality, oily wool. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes hand carding and spinning to create the carpet yarn.

The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, reflecting the cottage industry nature of production. Utilizing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug exhibits remarkable craftsmanship. Its foundation consists of cotton warp and weft, while the pile is composed entirely of wool.

To ensure exceptional durability, this rug features a double wefted construction, with a heavily packed and depressed warp. This ancient technique results in a resilient and long-lasting carpet that withstands the test of time. Moreover, the centuries-old dyeing methods employ all-natural substances, creating a truly authentic and organic color palette.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162, our meticulous calculation indicates that this rug boasts a remarkable total of 1,145,165 individually hand-tied knots. Such intricate detail and precise craftsmanship make this Afghani Mamluk tribal rug a true masterpiece.
