Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring the captivating Qashqai design. This tribal-style rug showcases a rich navy background, elegantly framed by a striking rust border. Crafted with meticulous care, this rug is made using high-quality wool on a cotton base, ensuring enduring beauty and comfort.

The origin of this remarkable rug lies in Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the Southeast. It is here where the sheep graze on mountainous terrain, producing wool of exceptional quality. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where skilled weavers hand card and spin the wool into carpet yarn, ready for the weaving process.

Woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, this rug carries the spirit of a cottage industry production. With an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft (wool pile), this rug exemplifies both skill and durability. The double weft and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique result in a rug that can withstand the test of time.

Adding to its allure, this rug incorporates centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, giving it an earthy and authentic charm. Notably, the captivating blue hues of this rug are derived from natural indigo dye, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. Indigo is renowned for its vibrant blue shades and has been used by cultures worldwide for thousands of years.

Measuring at 4'10" x 6'10", this rug boasts a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. Through our meticulous calculations, we have determined that this handcrafted masterpiece consists of an impressive 375,873 individually hand-tied knots in total.

Embrace the artistry and heritage of Afghan craftsmanship with this extraordinary rug. Enhance your space with its timeless elegance and bring a touch of cultural authenticity to your home.
