The background color is a rich rust tone, providing a warm and inviting focal point for any space. The ivory border adds a touch of elegance and contrast to the overall design.
Crafted from high-quality wool on a cotton foundation, this new rug combines durability with a luxurious feel underfoot. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain produces longer staple, oily wool known for its superior quality in carpet weaving.
This rug is handwoven by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, with most of them hailing from the Esari Subtribe. The weaving process takes place in the weavers' own homes or through cottage industry type production, utilizing traditional floor looms. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and double-wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving contribute to its exceptional durability.
Using centuries-old natural dyeing techniques, this rug derives its captivating red color from madder root dye. Madder root, scientifically known as Rubia tinctorum, has been cultivated and used as a dyeing agent for centuries in various cultures worldwide. It produces a range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades, adding depth and character to the rug.
With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 104, this rug showcases the weavers' meticulous craftsmanship. Based on the KPSI, this rug boasts a staggering 2,474,333 individually hand-tied knots.
Measuring 11'9" x 14'2", this rug is a substantial addition to any room, creating a stylish, timeless ambiance. Its versatile design and robust construction make it suitable for various settings, from traditional to modern interiors.
Whether you are looking to enhance your living room, dining room, or bedroom, this Afghani rug offers exceptional quality, craftsmanship, and aesthetic appeal. With its unique design, exquisite details, and natural dye properties, this rug brings a touch of Afghani heritage into your home.
