Drawing inspiration from the talented ethnic Turkmen weavers, particularly those from the Esari Subtribe, this rug showcases their exceptional craftsmanship. The wool used in this rug comes from the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain, which produces high-quality and longer staple wool for carpet weaving.
Before being transformed into a rug, the raw Ghazni wool is hand-carried and hand-spun into carpet yarn in Herat, located on the western side of Afghanistan. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' homes, exemplifying a cottage industry-type production.
Featuring an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug utilizes a cotton warp and weft with an all-wool pile. The double-wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique contributes to its exceptional durability, ensuring its longevity for years to come.
What adds to the allure of this rug is its use of centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, which have been skillfully applied to create its enchanting colors.
Additionally, this rug boasts a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, resulting in a total of 948,392 individually hand-tied knots. This intricate level of detail showcases the meticulous work invested into crafting this exceptional piece.
In summary, our Afghan rug featuring the Mina Khani design is a true testament to the artistry and skill of the ethnic Turkmen weavers. With its stunning color palette, durable construction, and rich cultural history, this rug is a treasure that will enhance any space with its beauty and charm.
