Introducing our exquisite transitional rug from Afghanistan, featuring a splendid design known as Serapi. This rug showcases a charming combination of an ivory background and a light blue border, creating a visually pleasing contrast. Its main color is ivory, providing a sense of elegance and sophistication.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this rug is made of high-quality materials. The wool used in its creation comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain produces longer staple wool ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to Herat, where it undergoes hand carding and spinning, ensuring the finest quality yarn for the rug.

Woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' homes, this rug maintains the authenticity of cottage industry production. Its pile is composed of wool, while the warp and weft are made of cotton, resulting in a durable and long-lasting piece. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type adds to its uniqueness.

Our rug features centuries-old natural dye stuffs, providing a rich and vibrant color palette. The beautiful blue hues in this rug are achieved through the use of natural indigo dye, obtained from the leaves of the indigo plant. With a history dating back thousands of years, indigo has been widely used in numerous cultures to produce exquisite blue shades.

With a knot density of 80 knots per square inch, this rug exemplifies the intricate craftsmanship of its weavers. In fact, we have hand-counted and determined that this rug boasts a remarkable 843,440 individually hand-tied knots in total.
