Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring the intricate Sauj Balugh design, which is a stunning representation of tribal artistry. The rug showcases a sophisticated grey background, complemented by a moss-colored border, adding an element of visual appeal.

Originating from Afghanistan, this rug is a high-quality creation by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this masterpiece comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that naturally yields longer staple, oily, and superior quality wool ideal for carpet weaving.

The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and spinning into carpet yarn. The weaving itself takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, reflecting a cottage industry type production.

Using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and employing a cotton warp and weft, this rug boasts a wool pile that results in a highly durable and long-lasting structure. The double wefted technique, combined with a heavily packed and depressed warp, further enhances the rug's resilience.

Adding to its allure, this rug is adorned with centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs, ensuring a captivating and authentic color palette. The dedication to using only the finest materials and traditional weaving methods contributes to the rug's undeniable beauty and story.

Most of these rugs are woven in Aqucha and Mazar Sharif, utilizing a 2-ply yarn per knot technique, which enhances the rug's overall strength and longevity.

Measuring 11'10" x 11'11", this remarkable rug showcases 80 knots per square inch. By calculating the KPSI, we estimated that this rug boasts an impressive total of 1,604,832 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail poured into its creation.

Embrace the rich cultural heritage and timeless elegance embodied by this Afghani balugh tribal rug. Its exquisite design, superior quality, and remarkable history make it a coveted addition to any discerning collector's repertoire.
