Introducing our exquisite Afghan rug, the epitome of elegance and craftsmanship. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically from the Moghan design, renowned for its tribal style. The background of the rug features a stunning silver hue, perfectly complemented by a cherry border. The main color palette of this rug gracefully blends shades of grey.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this rug is made using a combination of wool on cotton, ensuring both comfort and durability. Measuring 8'2" x 10'2", it is the perfect size to enhance any room with its exquisite presence.

The origins of this rug lie in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain naturally nurtures sheep, providing wool of superior quality with longer staple and higher oil content, ideal for carpet weaving. The wool is then transported to Herat, on the western side of Afghanistan, where it is hand carted and spun into carpet yarn, ready for the weaving process.

Woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, this rug is a product of the cottage industry, preserving the artistry and traditions passed down through generations. The weaving technique used is known as the asymmetrical "Persian" knot, while the warp and weft are made of cotton, with an all-wool pile.

What makes this rug truly exceptional is the double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving, ensuring unmatched durability. This weaving technique creates a sturdy foundation, resulting in a carpet that will withstand the test of time.

The vibrant and diverse color palette of this rug is achieved using centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, showcasing the artistry and expertise of the Turkmen weavers. The intricate patterns and designs are a testament to the rich cultural heritage of Afghanistan.

With a remarkable knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug boasts a breathtaking level of detail. Through careful calculations, we estimate that there are a staggering 944,918 individually hand-tied knots in this exceptional piece.

This Afghan rug, with its Afghani origin, Moghan design, and tribal style, is a testament to the masterful craftsmanship and timeless beauty of traditional Afghan textiles. It is a true work of art, destined to elevate any space with its captivating presence.
