This rug is made with the highest quality materials, featuring a wool pile on a sturdy cotton warp and weft. The wool used in its creation is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, renowned for producing long staple, oily wool of superior quality. The wool is then hand carted and spun into carpet yarn around Herat, on the western side of Afghanistan, before being expertly woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes.
Using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, this rug ensures utmost durability and long-lasting beauty. Each knot in this rug is meticulously hand-tied, with a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. By calculating the KPSI, we estimate that this rug boasts a staggering 895,276 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the skill and dedication of the weavers.
Adding to its allure, this rug is adorned with centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs, making it not just a work of art but also a piece of living history. The careful use of these traditional dyes imbues the rug with rich, enduring colors that will retain their brilliance for years to come.
