Introducing our exquisite Afghani Shahsavan rug, a true masterpiece that captures the essence of tribal design. This rug originates from Afghanistan, specifically from the Esari Subtribe known for their exceptional weaving skills. Crafted with utmost care and attention to detail, this rug showcases the timeless beauty of Shahsavan design.

The background of this rug features a captivating shade of blue, while the border elegantly contrasts in a soothing beige tone. The main color, blue, is achieved through the use of natural indigo dye stuffs, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant. This ancient dyeing technique has been utilized for centuries, producing vibrant and enduring blue hues that are truly captivating.

Made from high-quality materials, this rug boasts a composition of wool on cotton. The wool used in this rug is sourced exclusively from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. The region's mountainous terrain naturally produces longer staple oily wool, making it ideal for carpet weaving. After being carefully carted and hand-spun into carpet yarn around Herat, the wool is then woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes.

Featuring an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, this Shahsavan rug is a testament to the weavers' skill and dedication. Its cotton warp and weft, combined with a woolen pile, contribute to its durability and longevity. The rug is woven with a double weft and a heavily packed, depressed warp weaving technique, ensuring it remains a cherished piece for generations to come.

The expert craftsmanship of this rug is further reflected in its knots per square inch (KPSI) count of 162. Based on this count, we can proudly state that this rug possesses a remarkable total of 1,944,205 individually hand-tied knots.

Immerse yourself in the rich history and artistry of this exceptional Afghani Shahsavan rug. Its tribal charm, superior quality, and exquisite design make it a truly remarkable addition to any space.
