Introducing our exquisite Afghani Serab tribal rug! This magnificent piece originates from Afghanistan and showcases the captivating design of Serab, renowned for its tribal charm. The background of the rug features a delightful salmon hue, beautifully complemented by a grey border. The vibrant main color of this rug is a captivating shade of orange that adds a bold touch to any space.
Crafted using traditional techniques, this rug is meticulously handwoven by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for producing high-quality wool due to its mountainous terrain and longer staple. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to Herat, located on the western side of Afghanistan, where it is hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn.
The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms, individual weavers dedicating their talents to creating this masterpiece in the comfort of their own homes, reflecting a cottage industry production approach. Using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a cotton warp and weft, this rug boasts a double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, enhancing its durability and ensuring its longevity.
One of the striking features of this rug is its use of all-natural dye stuffs, a tradition passed down through centuries. The rich history of this rug can be seen in the intricate details and the carefully chosen color palette, showcasing the mastery of the Turkmen weavers.
Measuring at 3'2" X 4'8", this stunning rug is crafted from wool on a cotton foundation, resulting in a luxurious and comfortable texture. With 80 knots per square inch, we have meticulously calculated that this rug contains an impressive 168,183 individually hand-tied knots, demonstrating the immense skill and dedication of the weavers.
This Afghani Serab tribal rug is not only a magnificent piece of art but also a testament to the enduring craftsmanship of Afghan weavers. Its vibrant colors, traditional design, and exceptional quality make it a perfect addition to any home or collection.
