Introducing our exquisite afghani rug, featuring the mesmerizing mina khani design. This tribal style rug showcases a navy background with a rustic border, creating a captivating contrast. Crafted with utmost care and precision, this new rug is made of high-quality wool on a cotton foundation.

Originating from the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, the wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the region. The mountainous terrain of Ghazni naturally produces longer staple wool, known for its superior quality in carpet weaving. After being hand carted and spun in Herat, the wool is then woven on traditional floor looms by skilled artisans in their homes, embracing the cottage industry production approach.

Employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique, this rug showcases the expertise of Ethnic Turkmen Weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The cotton warp and weft, along with a densely packed depressed warp weaving, contribute to the exceptional durability of this handwoven masterpiece.

Indigo, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, lends the captivating blue color to this rug. Known for its vibrancy, natural indigo dye has been used for centuries by various cultures around the world.

With a remarkable knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug showcases the meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into its creation. In fact, we have calculated that this rug boasts a staggering total of 1,206,033 individually hand-tied knots.

Owning this afghani rug with its rich history and breathtaking design will undoubtedly add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any space. Let this masterpiece of craftsmanship be the centerpiece of your home.
