Introducing our exquisite Afghani Peking rug, a true testament to the ancient art of traditional rug weaving. Crafted by talented ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug is a masterwork of craftsmanship.

The rug is made from the finest Ghazni wool, sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. The region's mountainous terrain creates the perfect environment for sheep to produce longer staple, oily wool of exceptional quality, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to Herat, on the western side of Afghanistan, where it is painstakingly hand carted and spun into carpet yarn.

Using traditional floor looms, this rug is woven in the homes of the weavers, establishing a cottage industry type production. The weaving technique employed is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, resulting in a durable and long-lasting piece. The warp and weft are made from cotton, while the lush pile is crafted from all-natural wool.

In terms of design, this rug boasts a teal background, complemented by a pale grey border. Its size measures 7'8" x 9'10", allowing it to command attention in any space it graces. With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 104, we have determined that this rug features an impressive 1,120,622 individually hand-tied knots.

Imbued with centuries-old natural dye stuffs, this rug exudes a timeless beauty that will elevate any interior. Its distinct beauty and exceptional craftsmanship make it a unique and treasured addition to any collection.
