Introducing the remarkable Afghani Shirvan Tribal Rug, a true testament to the exquisite craftsmanship and rich heritage of Afghan rug weaving. Originating in Afghanistan, this tribal rug showcases the unique Shirvan design, renowned for its timeless beauty and intricate patterns.
The background of this rug features a captivating aqua hue that gracefully highlights the vibrant colors and motifs in the main design. The border, on the other hand, boasts a rust tone, adding a touch of warmth and sophistication.
Crafted using high-quality materials, this rug is made of wool on a cotton foundation. The wool used in this rug is sourced from the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that produces longer staple oily wool, perfect for carpet weaving. The wool is hand-carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn in the western region of Herat.
Using traditional floor looms, skilled weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, meticulously create this rug in their own homes or in small cottage industry workshops. The weaving technique employed is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, ensuring the durability and longevity of this handwoven masterpiece.
To achieve its captivating colors, this rug has been dyed with centuries-old, all-natural dye substances, further enhancing its authenticity and cultural significance.
Measuring 9 '0 " x 12'0 ", this rug is generously sized, making it suitable for various living spaces and decor styles. With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, we have calculated that this rug boasts a staggering 1,229,112 individually hand-tied knots.
