Introducing our exquisite Afghan rug with a captivating design inspired by the timeless traditions of the Serapi style. Originating from Afghanistan, this tribal rug exudes an authentic charm that will enhance any space with its vibrant colors.

The background of this magnificent rug boasts a rich and alluring shade of red, perfectly complemented by a navy border that adds depth and sophistication. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this rug features a combination of wool on cotton, ensuring a luxurious feel and exceptional durability.

Measuring at a generous size of 9'6" x 12'10", this rug provides a captivating focal point for any room. It is intricately woven by skilled Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug comes exclusively from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain yields longer staple, oily, and higher-quality wool, ideal for carpet weaving.

The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes the ancient process of hand carding and hand spinning, meticulously transforming it into carpet yarn. Each rug is lovingly woven on traditional floor looms within the weavers' own homes, reflecting the unique cottage industry production style that has been passed down through generations.

Using the timeless asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving, this rug embodies the epitome of durability, ensuring it will withstand the test of time. It boasts centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, diligently derived from various sources, including the madder root.

The captivating red hues in this rug are a result of the natural madder root dyes. Madder root, scientifically known as Rubia tinctorum, has a long-standing history as a dyeing agent and has been cultivated for centuries across the globe. From warm to cool shades of red, orange, pink, and brown, madder root dyes offer a wide spectrum of colors that beautifully embellish this rug.

With a remarkable 80 knots per square inch, this rug showcases the extraordinary level of craftsmanship involved in its creation. Impressively, this translates to a staggering 1,387,489 individually hand-tied knots throughout the entire rug, a testament to the artisan's skill and dedication.

Embrace the allure of Afghan culture and add a touch of tradition to your home with this outstanding tribal rug. It serves as a testament to the rich heritage and time-honored artistry of Afghan rug weaving. Bring home a piece of history and create an irresistible focal point with this meticulously crafted Serapi design Afghan rug.
