Introducing our exquisite rug, originating from Afghanistan and showcasing a traditional Oushak design. This rug embodies elegance and sophistication, with a pewter background and a stunning green border. Its main color palette is dominated by a beautiful shade of grey, creating a captivating visual appeal.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this rug is made of high-quality wool on a cotton foundation, ensuring its durability and long-lasting beauty. With a size of 10'1" x 14'3", it provides ample coverage for any living space or room.

Let's delve into the fascinating details of its creation. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. The region's mountainous terrain naturally produces longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool, perfect for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, specifically around Herat, where it undergoes hand-carting and hand-spinning to transform it into carpet yarn.

The rug is woven on traditional floor looms by skillful weavers, primarily belonging to the Esari Subtribe of Turkmen weavers. This cottage industry type production allows for a personalized touch in every piece, with each rug woven in the weaver's own home. The technique used is an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, ensuring the rug's structural integrity.

A crucial aspect of this rug's durability lies in its double-wefted, heavily packed, depressed warp weaving. This technique, combined with the sturdy cotton warp and weft, creates one of the most durable handwoven carpets available today.

Moreover, this rug bears the mark of centuries-old craftsmanship, as it is dyed using all-natural dye stuffs. The colors marinate and age gracefully over time, adding to the rug's charm and character.

Measuring an impressive 80 knots per square inch, our rug showcases the weavers' skill and precision. To give you an idea of the intricate work involved, this rug boasts a total of 1,635,254 individually hand-tied knots.

Indulge in the timeless beauty and exceptional quality of this Afghani Oushak rug. Its masterful craftsmanship and captivating design will transform any space into a refined haven. Place it in your home or office, and experience the enduring allure of this remarkable piece of art.
