Presenting our exquisite rug from Afghanistan, showcasing the stunning Sarkisla design. This tribal-style rug features a rust background and a captivating blue border, creating a striking and alluring visual appeal.

Crafted with utmost care and precision, this rug is made using wool on cotton, incorporating the finest quality materials. The wool, sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, possesses a longer staple and higher quality due to the mountainous terrain. This raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes hand carding and spinning to create the carpet yarn.

The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, fostering a cottage industry-like production. Using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, each knot is meticulously tied by hand, ensuring durability and longevity. The rug boasts a cotton warp and weft, with a luxurious all-wool pile.

To enhance its timeless beauty, this rug derives its enchanting blue color from natural indigo dye, woven using indigofera tinctoria or true indigo leaves. This ancient dye, renowned for its vibrant blue shades, has been utilized by cultures worldwide for thousands of years.

Furthermore, the rug showcases a captivating red color sourced from natural madder root dyes. Madder root, scientifically known as Rubia tinctorum, has a rich history as a dyeing agent and has been cultivated for centuries in various parts of the world. Through madder root dyes, a range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades can be achieved.

With a knot count of 80 knots per square inch (KPSI), this rug exemplifies the weaver's dedication to intricate craftsmanship. In fact, our calculations indicate that this item boasts an impressive 871,167 individually hand-tied knots in total.

Measuring 6'1" x 12'7", this Afghan rug is a testament to the skilled weavers and rich artistic heritage of the region. Its timeless design and meticulous craftsmanship make it a valuable addition to any space, exuding elegance and sophistication.
