Introducing our exquisite Pakistani rug, boasting a distinct pictorial design with tribal influences. This rug showcases an elegant ivory background, beautifully complemented by a striking green border. Crafted from high-quality natural materials, this rug features a wool pile on a sturdy cotton base.
The origins of this masterpiece can be traced back to the skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep found in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, an area known for its mountainous terrain that produces longer staple, oily, and superior quality wool for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is later transported to the western side of Afghanistan, specifically around Herat, where it is carefully hand carted and spun into carpet yarn.
This rug is expertly woven on traditional floor looms, often within the weavers' own homes or small cottage industries, showcasing their exceptional craftsmanship. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique is employed to create an intricate and durable weave. The cotton warp and weft provide a solid foundation for the wool pile, resulting in a resilient and long-lasting carpet.
What sets this rug apart is its centuries-old natural dyeing process, using all-natural dye stuffs. The colors in this rug are vibrant, rich, and represent a tradition passed down through generations. These natural dyes not only add to the aesthetic appeal but also contribute to the rug's cultural and historical significance.
Most of the rugs in this style are woven in Aqucha and Mazar Sharif, utilizing a two-ply yarn per knot. The density of this rug is evident in its knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, which indicates the level of intricacy and detail present. Calculating based on this KPSI, our meticulous craftsmen have hand-tied an impressive total of 247,212 knots in this rug, showcasing their dedication to creating a true masterpiece.
