Introducing our exquisite Afghani Serab Tribal Rug, a true masterpiece crafted with precision and care. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically the Esari Subtribe known for their exceptional weaving skills. The design showcases a captivating tribal style, featuring an ivory background with a mesmerizing blue border.

Created using the finest materials, this rug is made of wool on a cotton foundation, ensuring durability and longevity. The wool is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for its mountainous terrain that yields high-quality, longer staple, and oily 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.

Ethnic Turkmen weavers, deeply rooted in their traditional craft, weave this rug on traditional floor looms within their own homes. The weaving technique employed is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, which contributes to the rug's distinct pattern and texture. The foundation is made of cotton warp and weft, while the pile consists entirely of wool. The double wefted weaving method, with its heavily packed depressed warp construction, ensures utmost durability, resulting in a handwoven carpet that will stand the test of time.

What truly sets this rug apart is its use of all-natural dye stuffs, a practice that has been in existence for centuries. The captivating blue shade in this rug is derived from natural indigo dye, obtained from the leaves of the indigo plant (indigofera tinctoria). Indigo dye has a rich history spanning thousands of years and has been prized for its ability to produce vibrant blue hues. The skillful application of this natural dye adds a touch of authenticity to the rug, showcasing the weavers' deep connection to traditional techniques.

Measuring 2'7" x 9'9", our Afghani Serab Tribal Rug features a knot density of 80 knots per square inch. Through meticulous calculations, we have determined that this rug boasts an impressive total of 286,646 individually hand-tied knots. This attention to detail is a testament to the craftsmanship and dedication poured into every inch of this magnificent rug.

Indulge in the rich heritage of Afghan rug weaving with our Afghani Serab Tribal Rug. Embrace the warmth of its traditional design, the authenticity of its all-natural dyes, and the lasting beauty of its handwoven construction. Discover the timeless allure of this rug, a true masterpiece that will elevate any space in your home or collection.
