Introducing our exquisite rug from Afghanistan, this stunning piece showcases the traditional craftsmanship of Ethnic Turkmen Weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. The rug features a serapi sampler design, representing a tribal style.
With a light seafom background and a contrasting blue border, this rug captures the essence of Afghan tribal artistry. Its size measures 6 '0 " X 8 '10", making it an ideal addition to any room.
Crafted using high-quality materials, this rug is made of wool on a cotton foundation, ensuring both durability and comfort. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. This region's mountainous terrain produces longer staple, oily wool, perfect for carpet weaving.
The process of creating this rug involves the raw Ghazni wool being brought to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn. The weaving itself takes place on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, reflecting a cottage industry type of production. The rugs are woven using asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and feature a cotton warp and weft with an all-wool pile.
What sets this rug apart is its exceptional durability. The double-wefted construction and heavily packed depressed warp weaving result in a robust and long-lasting piece. It's no wonder that these handwoven carpets are considered some of the most durable in the world.
Paying homage to centuries-old traditions, this rug is dyed using all-natural substances, ensuring its colors remain vibrant and true over time. Such dedication to using natural dyes showcases the weavers' commitment to their craft and the preservation of traditional techniques.
Based on our calculations, this rug has a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80. This equates to a total of 603,173 individually hand-tied knots, highlighting the meticulous care and attention to detail poured into its creation.
