Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug! This stunning piece features the captivating Mamluk design, showcasing the impeccable craftsmanship and tribal charm that Afghani rugs are renowned for. The background of this rug boasts a soothing light blue hue, beautifully complemented by a vibrant red border, creating a striking visual contrast. The main color scheme of this rug is a captivating blue, adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to any space.

Crafted with utmost care and authenticity, this rug is made with high-quality wool sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. The rugged mountainous terrain in this region naturally produces longer staple, oily wool, lending exceptional durability and quality to the carpet. The wool is hand-carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn in the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, where it is meticulously prepared for weaving.

Woven by skilled artisans on traditional floor looms in their own homes or cottage industry settings, this rug showcases the timeless beauty of handmade craftsmanship. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type exemplifies the traditional weaving techniques used in its creation. The rug features a cotton warp and weft, with a wool pile, resulting in a luxurious texture that is soft to the touch.

To ensure its longevity, this rug is double wefted and tightly woven, creating a heavily-packed depressed warp weaving that makes it one of the most durable handwoven carpets available. Moreover, the rug dyes are derived from all-natural sources, following centuries-old traditions. The captivating blue color is achieved using natural indigo dye, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, which has a rich history dating back thousands of years. The red color, on the other hand, is sourced from natural madder root dyes—a type of dye derived from the roots of the madder plant (Rubia tinctorum).

With a knot count of 162 per square inch and an impressive total of 2,430,665 individually hand-tied knots, this rug is a testament to the meticulous weaving process employed by the skilled artisans. Its size, measuring 9'2" x 11'5", allows it to effortlessly fill any room with its presence and beauty.

Experience the rich history and timeless elegance of this Afghani rug—a true masterpiece that will add warmth, character, and a touch of tradition to any space.
