Introducing the exquisite Serapi rug from Afghanistan, this stunning piece showcases its origins in every intricate detail. Crafted by talented Turkmen weavers, particularly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug features a transitional design that seamlessly blends traditional and contemporary elements.

The background of the rug is elegantly adorned with a soothing shade of grey, while a captivating blue border frames the entire piece. The main color is a rich and captivating grey that adds depth and character to the design.

This rug is made using high-quality wool sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain of this region naturally produces longer staple wool, which is renowned for its quality and durability in carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is carefully transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous process of hand carding and spinning into carpet yarn.

Woven on traditional floor looms, this rug is a product of the cottage industry, with skilled weavers crafting these masterpieces in their own homes. The weaving technique used is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, which adds to the rug's unique charm and authenticity. The warp and weft of the rug are made of cotton, while the luxurious pile is crafted from wool.

The double-wefted construction and heavily packed depressed warp weaving ensure that this rug is not only visually stunning but also incredibly durable. With centuries-old natural dye stuffs, each vibrant hue in this rug is derived from the all-natural indigo dye, known for its deep and timeless blue shades.

Measuring 6 '3 " x 8 '11", this Serapi rug boasts a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. With this impressive KPSI, our calculations have revealed that this rug features a remarkable 634,237 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship and dedication of the weavers.

Transform any space into a haven of elegance and beauty with this Afghani Serapi rug. Its timeless design, superior craftsmanship, and rich cultural heritage make it a truly exceptional piece. Own a piece of history and tradition with this remarkable rug, perfect for adding warmth and style to any room.
