Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring the traditional Sauj Balugh design, a tribal masterpiece handcrafted with care and precision. The background color of this rug is a rich and captivating shade of eggplant, beautifully complemented by a vibrant green border.
Originating from Afghanistan, this rug represents the artistry and expertise of the ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in its creation is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province, known for producing high-quality, long-staple, and oily wool, ideal for weaving luxurious carpets.
The journey of this rug begins with the raw Ghazni wool being transported to the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat. Here, the wool is hand-carted and hand-spun into carpet yarn, ready to be transformed into a stunning creation. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms, often in the weavers' own homes, fostering a cottage industry type production.
Featuring an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug showcases the weavers' skill and attention to detail. With a cotton warp and weft, and a wool pile, this rug combines durability and comfort for a lasting and luxurious experience. The double wefted, heavily packed, and depressed warp weaving technique ensures longevity, making it one of the most durable handwoven carpets available today.
Adding to its charm and authenticity are centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs used in the coloring process, creating unique and captivating hues that will enrich any living space.
Most of these rugs are woven in Aqucha and Mazar Sharif, using 2-ply yarn per knot. Our specific rug boasts a notable knot count of 80 knots per square inch, resulting in a total of 180,195 individually hand-tied knots.
This rug is a true masterpiece, seamlessly blending rich cultural heritage with expert craftsmanship. It is an ideal addition to any space, bringing elegance, history, and warmth to your home or office.
