Introducing our magnificent rug from Afghanistan, this exquisite piece showcases the renowned design of the Sauj Balugh. The origins of this rug can be traced back to the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan, an area known for its mountainous terrain and ideal conditions for producing high-quality wool. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in this very region, ensuring a longer staple and naturally oily fiber, perfect for carpet weaving.
Handcrafted by skilled Ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug truly exemplifies the artistry and craftsmanship of the region. The wool is carefully hand carted and spun into carpet yarn, which is then woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, showcasing the cottage industry-type production.
Featuring an elegant transitional style, this rug boasts a seafoam background with a sophisticated gray border. The main color of this rug is a captivating teal, adding a touch of vibrancy and allure to any space it graces. The design incorporates the timeless asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, creating a visually captivating and durable rug.
The size of this rug measures 8'1" x 9'9", making it a versatile and impactful addition to any room. Crafted using wool on a cotton foundation, this rug achieves the perfect balance of comfort and durability. Its double wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique ensures unmatched durability, making it one of the most resilient handwoven carpets available today.
Adding to its charm and heritage, this rug features centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, resulting in rich and authentic colors that have stood the test of time. The meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail are evident in the 80 knots per square inch meticulously hand-tied in each corner of this rug.
In total, our calculations indicate that this rug boasts an impressive 896,935 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the skill and dedication of its weavers.
