Introducing a magnificent Afghani rug with a captivating design inspired by the Mamluk culture. This tribal-style rug features an exquisite aqua background, adorned with a burnt orange border that beautifully frames the main design. The main color of this rug is a mesmerizing teal, adding a stunning visual element to any space.

Crafted using the finest materials, this rug is made of wool on cotton, ensuring both comfort and durability. With a size of 8'2" x 9'9", it is perfectly suited for medium to large-sized rooms, making it a versatile addition to any interior.

Originating from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province, the wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep that roam the region's mountainous terrain. This natural environment creates longer staple, oily wool, renowned for its high quality in carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is hand-carted and hand-spun into carpet yarn, ready for weaving.

The weaving process takes place in the weavers' own homes or cottage industry setups, using traditional floor looms. Employing an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, the rug is meticulously crafted with double wefting and a heavily packed depressed warp. This technique ensures exceptional durability and longevity, creating a handwoven masterpiece that can withstand the test of time.

The vibrant colors of this rug are achieved through centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs, enhancing its authenticity and allure. Its deep history and cultural significance make this rug not only a stunning décor piece but also a valuable artifact that tells a story of tradition and craftsmanship.

Woven predominantly in the Karam Kul district of Andkhoi, known for its skilled weavers with a penchant for higher knot count weaving, this rug boasts a remarkable knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162. By making this calculation, we can determine that this rug features an astonishing 1,849,366 individually hand-tied knots in total, a testament to the meticulous artistry and skill that goes into its creation.

Experience the elegance and artistry of this Afghani Mamluk tribal rug, where ancient traditions meet contemporary design. This rug is an exceptional masterpiece that will enrich any space with its beauty, authenticity, and enduring quality.
