Introducing a Stunning Afghan Qashqai Tribal Rug

This exquisite rug boasts the unique beauty of Afghan craftsmanship and the alluring design of the Qashqai tribe. With its captivating navy background and striking ivory border, this rug seamlessly combines boldness and elegance. The main color of this new rug is a mesmerizing shade of blue, adding depth and charm to any space.

Crafted with utmost care and precision, this rug features a composition of wool on cotton, ensuring durability and quality. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for its high-quality, long-staple, and oily wool. This region's mountainous terrain provides ideal conditions for producing luxurious wool for carpet weaving.

Using traditional floor looms in their own homes, skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, mostly from the Esari Subtribe, expertly create this masterpiece. The weaving technique employed is an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, enhancing both the aesthetic value and durability of the rug. The heavily packed depressed warp weaving and double wefting make this handwoven carpet exceptionally resilient.

The centuries-old dyeing techniques employed in creating this rug utilize all-natural dye materials. For instance, the captivating blue hues are derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, making use of natural indigo dye stuffs. Indigo has been an ancient dye used by various cultures worldwide for its vibrant blue shades.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug showcases meticulous artistry and attention to detail. Our calculations indicate that this particular rug boasts a staggering 1,758,710 individually hand-tied knots in total, ensuring an enchanting and intricate design.

Unveil the splendor of Afghan craftsmanship in your space with this remarkable Afghan Qashqai tribal rug. Its timeless elegance, impeccable craftsmanship, and durable construction make it a cherished addition to any interior. Enhance your home's atmosphere with the captivating beauty of this extraordinary masterpiece.
