Introducing the exquisite Afghani Serapi rug, a true marvel of craftsmanship and artistry. This rug hails from Afghanistan, specifically the eastern province of Ghazni, where the mountainous terrain provides the perfect conditions for sheep to produce long staple, oily, high-quality wool.

Handcrafted by skilled weavers, many of whom are from the Esari Subtribe, this rug exemplifies the traditional weaving techniques of the region. The wool is hand-carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn in the city of Herat, on the western side of Afghanistan. Using asymmetrical "Persian" knots, the weavers meticulously create intricate patterns and designs, resulting in a visually stunning masterpiece.

The lavender background of this rug exudes a sense of calm and tranquility, while the border in a vibrant shade of green adds a pop of color and contrast. The main color of the rug is a striking purple, contributing to its overall allure and uniqueness.

Crafted from wool on cotton, this rug boasts excellent durability and longevity. The double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique ensures that it withstands the test of time, making it one of the most durable handwoven carpets available.

One of the highlights of this rug is its use of all-natural dye stuffs, which have been utilized for centuries. These dyes provide rich and vibrant colors that are not only visually appealing but also environmentally friendly.

Measuring at a size of 8'0" x 9'10", this rug features a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. With meticulous calculations, we estimate that this rug consists of an astonishing 895,276 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the dedication and skill of the weavers.

Immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage and timeless beauty of the Afghani Serapi rug. Add this magnificent piece to your home or collection and experience the allure of Afghan craftsmanship firsthand.
