Introducing an exquisite rug from Afghanistan, specifically from the Ghazni Province in the southeast. This rug showcases the stunning design of Sauj Balugh, a popular transitional style that combines traditional and contemporary elements. The background is a lovely light blue, while the border features a captivating teal color.
Crafted using traditional techniques by skilled Turkmen weavers, this rug is made of high-quality wool sourced from local sheep in the Ghazni Province. The wool is known for its longer staple and oily texture, making it ideal for carpet weaving. After being hand-carried and spun in Herat, the wool is transformed into carpet yarn, ready to be woven on traditional floor looms.
Utilizing an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug features a cotton warp and weft, while the pile is made entirely of wool. To ensure its durability, the rug has been double wefted and woven with a heavily packed depressed warp. These intricate weaving techniques have resulted in a rug that is not only stunning but also built to last for generations.
The colors of this rug are achieved through the use of natural dyes derived from the leaves of the indigo plant. Indigo dye, also known as indigofera tinctoria or true indigo, has been used by humans for thousands of years to create vibrant blue hues. Its rich history and universal appeal make the color of this rug truly timeless.
With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, this rug exhibits the incredible craftsmanship of its weavers. By calculating the KPSI, we have determined that this rug boasts an astounding 908,478 individually hand-tied knots.
Measuring 7'11" x 10'1", this rug is a remarkable piece that combines artistry, tradition, and quality. Enhance the ambiance of any space with this Afghani masterpiece.
