Introducing this exquisite rug from Afghanistan, which features the traditional Shahsevan Khorjin design. This tribal-style rug showcases a captivating combination of rust background and a teal border. Crafted with care, the rug is made of high-quality wool on a cotton foundation. With its dimensions measuring 10'1" x 10'2", this rug is sure to make a statement in any room.
The skilled Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe, have painstakingly created this rug using all-natural materials. The wool used is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province, known for producing longer staple and higher quality wool. The raw Ghazni wool is then brought to the western side of Afghanistan, where it is hand-carded and spun into carpet yarn, ready for weaving.
Using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, the weavers have intricately woven this rug on traditional floor looms in their own homes, contributing to a cottage industry-style production. The sturdy construction is achieved through double wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving, ensuring long-lasting durability.
The timeless beauty of this rug is enhanced by the rich red color, derived from natural madder root dyes. Madder root dyes have a centuries-old history as a dyeing agent and are cultivated in various parts of the world. Madder root dyes can produce a range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades, adding depth and character to the rug's design.
This rug boasts a knot count of 80 knots per square inch, resulting in a total of 1,166,676 individually hand-tied knots. Such meticulous craftsmanship ensures the rug's longevity and adds to its value as a unique piece of art.
