Introducing our exquisite rug from Afghanistan! This stunning piece showcases the intricate Mina Khani design, which is a beloved choice among tribal-style rugs. The background of this rug features a deep navy hue, beautifully complemented by a rust-toned border. The main color scheme highlights a captivating shade of blue.

Crafted with quality in mind, this rug is made using traditional techniques by skilled weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used to create this masterpiece is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain produces long-staple, oily wool known for its excellent carpet-weaving properties.

To ensure its durability, this rug is woven with an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and features a cotton warp and weft, with a woolen pile. The double-wefted construction and heavily packed, depression warp weaving make it one of the sturdiest handwoven carpets available today.

The colors of this rug are derived from centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs. In particular, the captivating blue in this piece is achieved through the use of natural indigo dye, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. This ancient dyeing technique, known as indigofera tinctoria or true indigo, has a rich history spanning thousands of years and has been celebrated for creating vibrant blue hues.

With an impressive knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug showcases the meticulous work of the weavers. In fact, our calculations indicate that this particular rug boasts an astounding 896,935 individually hand-tied knots!

Measuring at 8'1" x 9'9", this rug presents a generous size that will elevate any space with its captivating design and rich cultural heritage.

Experience the allure of Afghan craftsmanship and the timeless beauty of this exceptional rug. Add a touch of tribal elegance to your home with this masterpiece today!
