Originating from Afghanistan, this rug is an exceptional creation by ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug is sourced from the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that results in longer staple wool. This top-quality wool is then transported to Herat in western Afghanistan. There, it undergoes a meticulous process of hand carting and hand spinning into carpet yarn, ready for weaving.
Woven on traditional floor looms in the artisans' homes, this rug showcases the labor-intensive craftsmanship of a cottage industry. Its densely woven construction, featuring asymmetrical Persian knots and double-wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving, ensures exceptional durability and longevity.
Adding to its allure, this rug boasts centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs. For example, the captivating red color is derived from natural madder root dyes. Madder root, scientifically known as Rubia tinctorum, has been cultivated for centuries due to its dyeing properties. This natural dye offers a range of warm and cool shades, including red, orange, pink, and brown.
Measured by knots per square inch, this rug boasts a remarkable 80 KPSI. Calculating the total knots in this rug based on its KPSI, we have determined that it features an impressive 61,646 individually hand-tied knots.
Embrace the artistry and heritage woven into this Afghan rug. With its captivating design, rich history, and exceptional craftsmanship, this rug is an ideal statement piece for any rug connoisseur or interior enthusiast.
