Introducing our exquisite Afghan Serab Tribal Rug, boasting a captivating design and enchanting beauty. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically crafted by the skilled hands of ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this masterpiece is sourced from sheep residing in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain promotes the growth of longer staple, oily, and high-quality wool sought after for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is meticulously hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn, ready for weaving.

Embodying the tribal charm, this rug showcases the classic Serab design, characterized by a tribal motif and an unmistakable sense of rustic allure. Its background color boasts a rich navy hue, elegantly complemented by a vibrant red border, adding a touch of warmth and contrast. The main color palette of this rug revolves around a stunning shade of blue, derived from natural indigo dye stuffs. Indigo, one of the oldest known dyes used by humanity, imparts a mesmerizing and vibrant blue hue to this remarkable piece.

The use of natural madder root dyes contributes to the remarkable red tones found in this rug. Madder root dyes, derived from the roots of the Rubia tinctorum plant, have a long history of being cultivated and used as a dyeing agent across various cultures. With their versatile range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades, madder root dyes lend a unique and timeless allure to this rug.

Crafted using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this rug exemplifies the meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail involved in its creation. It features a wool pile on a cotton warp and weft, ensuring durability and the longevity of its intricate patterns. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, embodying the essence of a cottage industry production. Double wefted and skillfully woven, this rug showcases a heavily packed depressed warp technique, resulting in the highest quality and durability.

Measuring at a size of 2'11" x 4'4", this extraordinary rug showcases a remarkable knot density of 80 knots per square inch. We have meticulously counted and calculated that this rug consists of a grand total of 143,839 individually hand-tied knots. Each knot bears witness to the skill and dedication of the weavers, creating a truly unique and exceptional work of art.

Embrace the allure and heritage of Afghan craftsmanship with our Afghan Serab Tribal Rug. This remarkable piece will captivate and embellish any space with its exquisite design, rich colors, and superior quality.
