Introducing our magnificent rug, originating from Afghanistan, the breathtaking Rainbow Gabbeh. This rug showcases a vibrant tribal design, with a striking blue background and a captivating purple border. Crafted using high-quality wool on a cotton foundation, this rug measures 7'11" X 10'4".
The Rainbow Gabbeh is a product of the skilled Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain naturally yields longer staple oily wool, perfect for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is hand-carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn.
Woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, this rug features an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft with an all-wool pile. Its double-wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving ensures remarkable durability, making it one of the most enduring handwoven carpets available.
Adding to its timeless appeal, the Rainbow Gabbeh is dyed using centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs. The captivating blue color is derived from natural indigo dye stuffs, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. Indigo, with its rich history spanning thousands of years, has been revered globally for its ability to create vibrant blue hues.
With a knot per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug boasts a total of 931,002 individually hand-tied knots, showcasing the meticulous craftsmanship invested in its creation. The Rainbow Gabbeh is a true masterpiece, exemplifying the beauty and artistry of Afghan rug weaving.
