Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug with a captivating Qashqai design. This tribal-style rug features an ivory background and a light blue border, adding a touch of elegance to any space. Crafted with care, this rug is made of wool on cotton, ensuring both durability and comfort.

Measuring at 4'3" x 6'1", this rug showcases the masterful artistry of ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The lustrous wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain produces longer staple, high-quality wool. The wool is then hand carted and spun in Herat, located on the western side of Afghanistan, resulting in carpet yarn of exceptional texture.

Every detail of this rug is meticulously crafted by hand on traditional floor looms in the weavers' homes, embodying the cottage industry type production. The utilization of an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, along with a double-wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, guarantees the utmost durability of this handwoven masterpiece.

Indulge in the charm of centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, contributing to the distinct character of this rug. Most of the rugs in this style are woven in Aqucha and Mazar Sharif, utilizing two-ply yarn per knot. Notably, the enchanting blue color in this rug is derived from natural indigo dye stuffs. True indigo, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant, has a long history as one of the oldest known dyes used by humans. Embracing tradition, this rug echoes the vibrant blue hues produced by indigo across cultures and time.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, we meticulously counted a total of 294,236 individually hand-tied knots in this mesmerizing rug. This rug is a statement piece that marries timeless craftsmanship, exquisite design, and cultural heritage.
