Introducing our exquisite rug! This stunning piece originates from Afghanistan, specifically from skilled Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The design employed is known as Sauj Balugh, showcasing its tribal style. The background of this rug boasts a serene cloud blue shade, accentuated by a teal border.

Let's delve into the fascinating details of its creation. The wool used in this rug hails from the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, recognized for its mountainous terrain, which naturally yields longer staple oily wool. This high-quality wool is then transported to Herat on the western side of Afghanistan, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and spinning into carpet yarn.
The weaving of this rug takes place in the comfort of the weavers' own homes, utilizing traditional floor looms. Employing an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, each knot represents the weaver's dedication and skill. The double wefting and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique contribute to the exceptional durability of this handwoven masterpiece.
Drawing inspiration from centuries-old traditions, this rug incorporates all-natural dye stuffs. The rich blue hue in this particular rug is derived from natural indigo dyes, obtained from the leaves of the indigo plant. Indigo, one of the oldest known dyes utilized by humans, adds vibrancy and depth to this remarkable piece.
Take a moment to appreciate the intricacy of this rug. With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, a total of 457,991 individually hand-tied knots showcase the craftsmanship and dedication of its creators.
