Introducing our exquisite handwoven rug from Afghanistan, specifically originating from the Afghani region. This remarkable piece showcases the traditional tribal design known as Sauj Balaugh, reflecting the rich cultural heritage of the region.
The background of this rug features a sophisticated taupe hue, harmoniously blending with the striking aqua border. The main color scheme of this rug centers around a beautiful beige, adding a touch of warmth and elegance to any space it graces.
Crafted using the finest materials, this rug is made of wool on cotton, with the wool sourced exclusively from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. Known for its mountainous terrain, this region produces high-quality wool due to the longer staple length and natural oils found in the wool fibers.
The wool is carefully hand carted and hand spun into carpet yarn in the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat. With the utmost attention to detail, this rug is then woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, employing a cottage industry production method.
Featuring the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, this rug boasts exceptional durability. The double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique ensures its longevity, making it a true investment for generations to come.
To honor the age-old weaving traditions, this rug is crafted using centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs. The result is a captivating blend of colors that will gracefully evolve over time, enhancing the rug's unique character.
With a size of 9'2" x 11'9", this rug offers a generous area of coverage, suitable for a variety of spaces. Each square inch of this meticulously handcrafted rug contains 80 knots, totaling an impressive 1,225,797 individually hand-tied knots.
Embrace the beauty and heritage of Afghan craftsmanship with this exceptional rug.
