Introducing our exquisite rug, originating from Afghanistan and boasting a timeless design known as Sauj Balugh, which falls under the tribal style. The background color of this rug is a sophisticated shade of grey, perfectly complemented by an olive border. Crafted from high-quality materials, this rug features a wool pile on a cotton foundation, ensuring both plushness and durability.

In terms of its size, this rug measures 6'3" in width and 6'6" in length, making it an ideal addition to any living space or decorative setting.

Let's delve into the fascinating backstory of this rug. It is masterfully woven by ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in its creation is sourced from sheep residing in the mountainous terrain of the Ghazni Province in Southeast Afghanistan. This region's natural conditions support the growth of longer staple, oily wool, which is known for its exceptional quality in the art of carpet weaving.

The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, specifically Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand-carding and hand-spinning, transforming it into carpet yarn ready for weaving. The weaving itself takes place on traditional floor looms, dotted throughout the weavers' homes or small cottage industries.

With an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, this rug epitomizes both traditional craftsmanship and enduring strength. The double-wefted technique and heavily-packed, depressed warp weaving contribute to its outstanding durability, ensuring that it withstands the test of time.

To add to its allure, this rug is adorned with all-natural dye stuffs, a practice dating back centuries and imbuing the rug with a rich array of colors.

Noteworthy details about this rug include the fact that most rugs are woven in Aqucha and Mazar Sharif, and that each knot is created using a 2-ply yarn. These factors contribute to the rug's overall intricacy and quality.

To provide a glimpse into the meticulous artistry, our rug showcases a knot density of 80 knots per square inch. Based on this, we have accurately calculated that this particular rug consists of an impressive 462,339 individual, hand-tied knots.

This rug encapsulates the harmonious blend of Afghan heritage, exceptional craftsmanship, and timeless design. Indulge in the beauty and elegance that this Afghani rug brings to your space.
