Introducing our exquisite Afghan Serapi Sampler rug! This remarkable piece of artistry originates from Afghanistan, a country known for its rich tapestry of rug weaving traditions. Crafted by talented ethnic Turkmen weavers, many of whom belong to the Esari subtribe, this rug showcases their exceptional craftsmanship and dedication to preserving their cultural heritage.

The design of this rug follows the cherished Serapi style, a popular tribal aesthetic characterized by its intricate patterns and bold use of color. Against a stunning silver background, the rug features a striking border adorned in navy, adding a touch of elegance and contrast. The main color palette of the rug presents a captivating blend of grey tones, creating a visually captivating and versatile piece that will enhance any space.

To create this awe-inspiring rug, only the finest materials were used. The content consists of wool on a cotton foundation, blending warmth and softness with durability and stability. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, a region renowned for its mountainous terrain that naturally yields longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool perfect for carpet weaving.

The rug is meticulously handcrafted by skilled artisans on traditional floor looms, often in the comfort of their own homes, as part of a cottage industry production. Employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and masterfully weaving the cotton warp and weft with an all-wool pile, this rug exhibits exceptional attention to detail and technique.

Centuries-old all-natural dye stuffs were used to achieve the rich and vibrant colors found in this rug, showcasing a commitment to preserving traditional dyeing methods. This ensures that the colors will remain vivid and timeless for generations to come.

Measuring at 6'3" x 8'10", this rug is a true work of art, boasting a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. Based on this KPSI calculation, we estimate that there are approximately 628,305 individually hand-tied knots in total. This level of intricacy and craftsmanship reflects the dedication and passion put into creating this unique masterpiece.

Our Afghan Serapi Sampler rug is a testament to the skill, artistry, and cultural significance of Afghan rug weaving. Its captivating design and meticulous craftsmanship make it an exceptional addition to any home or collection. Transform your space with the timeless elegance of this remarkable piece from Afghanistan.
