Introducing our exquisite rug, crafted with precision and care, we present to you a masterpiece of Afghan origin. This rug showcases the distinctive design of Moghul influence, infusing elements of tribal style into its very essence. The background, adorned in a captivating shade of grey, perfectly complements the light blue border, adding a touch of elegance to its overall allure.

Handmade by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly hailing from the Esari Subtribe, this rug is a testament to their artistry. The wool used in its creation is sourced from sheep in the mountainous terrain of the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan. This region's geographic advantage provides longer staple, oily, high-quality wool, ideal for carpet weaving.

The journey of this rug begins with the raw Ghazni wool, which is transported to the western side of Afghanistan near Herat. Here, it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and spinning, transforming it into exquisite carpet yarn. Woven on traditional floor looms within the weavers' own homes, this rug embodies the essence of a cottage industry, where each knot is imbued with the weaver's skill and dedication.

Utilizing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, the pile of this rug is created with wool on a cotton warp and weft. Its double-wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique ensures durability, making it a timeless addition to any space. Furthermore, the use of centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs elevates the beauty of each color, allowing the rug to emit an aura of authenticity.

For those with a discerning eye, the knots per square inch of this rug amount to a remarkable 162. By calculating the KPSI, we have determined that this exquisite item boasts a grand total of 2,342,260 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship involved.

To complete its narrative, the color blue, so prominently featured in this rug, comes from natural indigo dye stuffs. Extracted from the leaves of the indigo plant, this dye has a rich history dating back thousands of years. With cultural significance in various parts of the world, it imparts a vibrant blue hue to this rug, further enhancing its beauty and charm.

Transport yourself to a realm of artistry and tradition with this exceptional rug. Embrace its heritage, appreciate its complexity, and revel in the sheer beauty it exudes.
