The origin of this rug traces back to Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the southeast. The local weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe, acquire all-natural wool from sheep in this mountainous region, known for the production of superior-quality wool. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and spinning into carpet yarn.
Using traditional floor looms, skilled artisans weave this rug in their own homes, following centuries-old techniques. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, combined with a cotton warp and weft, creates a visually captivating and highly durable rug.
This exceptional rug boasts an impressive knot count of 162 knots per square inch, resulting in a total of approximately 767,415 individually hand-tied knots. The weavers in the Karam Kul district of Andkhoi, renowned for their expertise in achieving a higher knot count, contribute to the remarkable craftsmanship of this piece.
