Introducing our exquisite rug, originating from Afghanistan, this captivating piece showcases the remarkable design of the Mamluk tribe. With a tribal style, it effortlessly brings a touch of tradition and cultural richness to any space.

The background of this rug is a regal royal blue, adding a sense of grandeur and elegance to its overall appearance. The border features a contrasting beige hue, creating a visually pleasing and harmonious contrast. The main color of this rug is a stunning blue, further enhancing its captivating presence.

Crafted meticulously, this rug is made of wool on cotton, combining the durability of cotton with the luxurious feel of wool. Measuring at a size of 1'11" x 3'1", it is the perfect addition to any smaller area, bringing both style and warmth.

Expertly woven by ethnic Turkmen weavers, many of whom are from the Esari Subtribe, this rug embodies incredible craftsmanship. The wool used in its creation is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for their exceptional quality wool thanks to the mountainous terrain. The raw Ghazni wool is then brought to Herat, where it is carefully hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn, ensuring the highest standards of quality.

Woven on traditional floor looms within people's own homes, this rug represents a cottage industry type of production, showcasing the rich heritage and traditions of the Afghan people. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type adds to the uniqueness and authenticity of this piece.

Made with centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, this rug is a testament to the enduring power and beauty of natural indigo. The vibrant blue color in this rug comes from the leaves of the indigo plant, known for their historical significance in dyeing practices worldwide. With a knots per square inch of 80, we estimate that this rug contains a remarkable 67,257 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the incredible skill and dedication of the weavers.

Our remarkable rug is a true treasure, combining timeless design, exceptional craftsmanship, and a history that spans generations. Whether placed in a living room, bedroom, or entryway, it is sure to make a statement and become a cherished heirloom for years to come.
