Introducing the exquisite Afghan Moghul Traditional Rug, featuring a stunning design with an origin rooted in the rich Afghan heritage. This rug showcases the craftsmanship of skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this masterpiece is sourced from the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that naturally produces longer staple, oily, and high-quality wool ideal for carpet weaving.

Hand-carded and hand-spun in the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, the raw Ghazni wool is transformed into carpet yarn with utmost care and dedication. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms within the weavers' own homes, resembling a cottage industry type production. Employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug boasts remarkable durability with a cotton warp and weft, and a luxurious all-wool pile.

The vibrant blue background of this rug originates from natural indigo dye stuffs, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant. True indigo, also known as indigofera tinctoria, has been used for thousands of years to create vibrant blue hues in various cultures around the world. The blue in this rug is a testament to the enduring legacy of this ancient dyeing technique.

Measuring at 9'8" x 9'9", this rug showcases an impressive knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162. Through our meticulous calculation, we have determined that this rug is composed of a staggering 2,189,044 individually hand-tied knots, exemplifying the meticulous attention to detail bestowed upon its creation.

Immerse yourself in the elegance and tradition embodied in this Afghan Moghul Traditional Rug. Its timeless design and impeccable craftsmanship make it a true treasure for any collector or admirer of fine rugs.
