Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring the unique Mamluk design. This tribal-style rug showcases a captivating beige background, beautifully complemented by a grape border. Crafted with care, this rug is made of high-quality wool on a cotton base, ensuring both durability and comfort.
Originating from the mountainous terrain of the Ghazni Province in South East Afghanistan, the wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the region. The Esari Subtribe, a skilled group of ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily creates these masterpieces. The wool is transported to the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, where it is hand-carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn, ready for weaving.
Using traditional floor looms, the weavers produce this rug in their own homes or through cottage industry-type production. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique is employed to create the intricate designs on a cotton foundation with a wool pile, resulting in a sturdy and long-lasting rug.
A testimony to its durability, this handwoven rug is double-wefted, with a heavily packed and depressed warp weaving technique. Moreover, the use of centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs adds an authentic touch to its vibrant colors.
Woven predominantly in the Karam Kul district of Andkhoi, renowned for skilled weavers and higher knot count weaving, this rug is a testament to the dedication and craftsmanship of its creators. Each knot is meticulously hand-tied using a single-ply pern knot yarn, resulting in a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 104. As a result, our rug boasts an impressive 514,068 individually hand-tied knots in total.
Elevate your space with this captivating Afghani Mamluk rug, a harmonious blend of exquisite design and expert craftsmanship.
