Introducing our exquisite Afghan Serapi Tribal Rug! This rug showcases a captivating design and originates from Afghanistan, known for its rich heritage of rug weaving. The background of the rug features a stunning shade of blue, complemented by a beautiful beige border.

Crafted with precision, this rug follows the traditional Serapi design, which is characterized by its bold motifs and tribal influences. The skilled Turkmen weavers, mainly from the Esari Subtribe, have carefully handcrafted this masterpiece using wool sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain of Ghazni naturally produces high-quality wool with longer staples, creating a luxurious and durable carpet.

To ensure longevity, the wool is brought to the western side of Afghanistan near Herat, where it is hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn. The weaving process takes place on traditional floor looms, often within the weavers' homes or cottage industry settings. Using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique, each knot is constructed with intricate precision, making this rug a testament to fine craftsmanship.

This rug features a wool pile woven on a cotton warp and weft, creating a sturdy foundation that enhances its durability. The double wefting and heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique contribute to its exceptional strength, ensuring that it will withstand the test of time.

As for its color, the captivating blue hues of this rug are derived from natural indigo dye stuffs. Indigo, obtained from the leaves of the indigo plant, has been used for centuries across various cultures to produce vibrant blue shades. Our Serapi Tribal Rug exemplifies the timeless beauty and allure of this age-old dyeing technique.

Measuring at 8'2" x 8'8", this rug is the perfect size to become a focal point in any room. With a knot per square inch (KPSI) of 80, we can proudly say that this rug boasts an impressive 805,504 individually hand-tied knots. This meticulous attention to detail ensures a luxurious texture and exceptional quality.

Don't miss the opportunity to own this extraordinary Afghan Serapi Tribal Rug and add a touch of elegance to your space. Immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of Afghanistan with this magnificent piece of art.
