Introducing our exquisite afghani rug, featuring a stunning serapi design! This transitional style rug boasts a seafoam background, complemented by a captivating blue border. The main color, a mesmerizing teal, adds a touch of elegance to this piece. Crafted with utmost care, this rug is made with high-quality wool on a cotton base, ensuring both durability and comfort.

With dimensions of 11'5" x 15'2", this rug provides ample coverage for any space. Its origin can be traced back to Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province, known for its mountainous terrain that produces top-grade wool. The wool is sourced from sheep in this region and then transported to Herat, where it undergoes hand carding and spinning into fine carpet yarn.

The craftsmanship of this rug is truly remarkable. Woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' homes, each piece is a testament to their skill and dedication. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique employed in the weaving process adds an authentic touch. The use of cotton warp and weft, along with a double wefted and heavily packed depressed warp, ensures exceptional durability, making this rug a lasting investment.

Centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs are employed to achieve the vibrant colors of this rug. The captivating blue tones, derived from natural indigo dyes made from the leaves of the indigo plant, evoke a sense of timeless beauty. It is worth noting that this rug has a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, which translates to a staggering total of 1,970,604 hand-tied knots.

Immerse yourself in the artistry and craftsmanship of this remarkable rug. Its afghani heritage and serapi design make it a true collector's item. Bring a touch of elegance and sophistication to your space with this alluring masterpiece.
