Introducing our exquisite Afghan rug, originating from the renowned Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan. This rug showcases the tribal charm of an Oushak design, depicting a striking silver background adorned with a grape border. Crafted in a style that embraces the rich heritage of Afghan weaving, this rug is a testament to the skill and artistry of ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly hailing from the Esari Subtribe.

Meticulously woven on traditional floor looms, often within the weavers' own homes or as part of the cottage industry, this rug embodies the authenticity and tradition of handcrafted carpets. The wool used in this masterpiece is sourced exclusively from Ghazni Province, famed for its mountainous terrain that nurtures sheep yielding longer staple, oily wool of exceptional quality.

Before reaching the looms, the raw Ghazni wool is meticulously brought to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes the traditional process of hand carding and spinning into carpet yarn. The result is a magnificent rug with a pile made entirely of wool, skillfully woven onto a cotton warp and weft.

Featuring an asymmetrical "Persian" knot, this rug boasts a double-wefted construction, enhancing its durability and ensuring its longevity. The depressed warp weaving technique employed in its creation further contributes to its robustness, making it one of the most resilient handwoven carpets available today.

Every fiber of this rug tells a story, as the dyes used are derived from all-natural sources, continuing the centuries-old tradition of using organic materials for coloring. Such meticulous attention to detail and the craftsmanship involved results in a truly unique masterpiece.

Measuring 7 feet and 11 inches in width and 9 feet and 8 inches in length, this Afghan rug exudes elegance and charm. With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, we estimate that this exceptional piece boasts a staggering 870,943 individually hand-tied knots.

Immerse yourself in the captivating beauty of this Afghan rug, and witness the seamless blend of artistry and tradition woven into its very fabric.
