Introducing an exquisite rug from Afghanistan, this Ottoman design rug showcases a captivating blend of tradition and modernity. With a rust background and an ivory border, this transitional-style rug adds a touch of elegance to any space.
Crafted by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe, this rug is made from high-quality wool sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province. The mountainous terrain of this region naturally produces longer staple and oily wool, perfect for carpet weaving.
To prepare the wool, it is brought to the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, where it is meticulously hand-carted and hand-spun into carpet yarn. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, adding a personal touch to each piece.
Featuring an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft with an all-wool pile, this rug exhibits exceptional craftsmanship. The double-wefted construction and heavily packed depressed warp weaving make it incredibly durable, ensuring its longevity.
As for the colors, the captivating red hue is derived from natural madder root dyes. These dyes are obtained from the roots of the madder plant, scientifically known as Rubia tinctorum. Throughout history, madder root dyes have been extensively cultivated and used by various cultures worldwide, offering a range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades.
With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 104, this rug boasts an impressive total of 1,463,228 individually hand-tied knots. This attention to detail and precision in craftsmanship further enhances its beauty and value.
Measuring approximately 8'9" x 11'3", this vibrant and meticulously crafted rug is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that will undoubtedly elevate the aesthetic of any room.
