Introducing a stunning Afghani rug with a captivating design, we present to you a Qashqai tribal rug. Its origins can be traced back to Afghanistan, specifically the Esari subtribe. Crafted by skilled Turkmen weavers, this rug showcases their mastery in traditional carpet weaving techniques.

The background of this rug features a deep navy hue, beautifully contrasting with the rust-colored border. The main color of this masterpiece is a rich blue, adding vibrancy and character to any space it adorns. Made from wool sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province, this rug boasts high-quality, longer staple wool known for its durability and intricacy.

Measuring 5'2" x 8'1", this rug is carefully woven on traditional floor looms, embracing the cottage industry type production. The weavers employ an asymmetrical "Persian" knotting style, ensuring each knot is meticulously tied. The pile is composed of wool, while the warp and weft are made from cotton, adding to the durability and resilience of this piece.

One of the notable features of this rug is its all-natural dyes. Centuries-old dyeing techniques using natural indigo dye stuffs are employed to achieve the captivating blue tones. Natural indigo dye, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, has been used for thousands of years to produce vibrant blue hues that stand the test of time.

With a knot density of 80 knots per square inch, this rug is a true testament to the meticulous craftsmanship of its weavers. By calculating the KPSI (knots per square inch), we have determined that this rug boasts an astounding 475,302 individually hand-tied knots.

This unique Afghani Qashqai tribal rug is a masterpiece that blends cultural heritage, meticulous craftsmanship, and timeless elegance. Enrich any space with its captivating design and superior quality.
