Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, showcasing the stunning design of Sauj Balugh, a true testament to tribal style. This alluring masterpiece boasts a silver background, complemented by an olive border that adds a touch of elegance. Handcrafted with the utmost care and precision, this rug is a testament to the skill and expertise of the ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe.
Intriguingly, the wool used in this rug hails from the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. Nestled amidst mountainous terrain, this region naturally nurtures sheep with longer staple, oily wool of exceptional quality, perfect for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, where it undergoes the traditional process of hand carding and hand spinning to become carpet yarn.
The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms, within the comfort of people's homes, contributing to the cottage industry-style production. To ensure its resilience and durability, this rug features the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, with all-wool pile. The double wefted technique, combined with its heavily packed, depressed warp weaving, results in a truly robust and long-lasting rug.
Be captivated by the centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs used to achieve the vibrant colors that adorn this masterpiece. Each knot is crafted with utmost care, ensuring a premium-quality rug that exudes luxury and artistry.
Measuring at 6'3" x 9'5", this extraordinary rug showcases a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, showcasing the exceptional intricacy and attention to detail of its design. In fact, our calculations reveal that this rug boasts a staggering 669,802 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the dedication and craftsmanship of the weavers.
With its rich heritage, impeccable craftsmanship, and timeless design, this Afghani rug is a true statement piece that will elevate any space it graces. Immerse yourself in the cultural tapestry woven within its threads and allow it to become the centerpiece of your home.
