Every detail of this rug has been meticulously thought out, from its origin to the materials used. The wool used in the production of this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. This region's mountainous terrain naturally yields longer staple oily wool, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then brought to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is hand carted and spun into carpet yarn, ready for creation. Ethnically Turkmen weavers, mainly from the Esari Subtribe, skillfully weave these rugs on traditional floor looms in their own homes, exemplifying the artisanal nature of the craft.
The rug employs an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and utilizes a cotton warp and weft, with an all-wool pile. This double-wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique ensures the utmost durability, guaranteeing that this handwoven carpet will last for generations.
The vibrant blue hues present in this rug are achieved through the use of natural indigo dye stuffs. Derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, the dye has been used for thousands of years to create brilliant blues. The color red, on the other hand, is obtained through natural madder root dyes. These dyes, derived from the roots of the madder plant, have a long history of use and can produce a range of warm and cool shades of red, orange, pink, and brown. Both indigo and madder root dyes have been widely utilized in various cultures worldwide.
With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug is a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail. Based on the KPSI, we have calculated that this rug has a total of 586,414 individually hand-tied knots, highlighting the intricate nature of its creation.
Immerse yourself in the captivating beauty and rich cultural heritage of this Afghan rug. It is a testament to the artistry and skill of the weavers who have poured their creativity into its creation. Each rug tells a unique tale, and this one is no exception. Adorn your space with this exquisite masterpiece and enjoy its timeless beauty for years to come.
