Introducing our exquisite rug, originating from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the southeast. This rug features a contemporary design known as Small Fish, showcasing a captivating combination of medium blue for the background and a striking grape border. Its main color palette is dominated by a serene shade of blue.

Crafted with utmost care and attention to detail, this rug possesses a whimsical charm that adds a touch of elegance to any space. Made using traditional techniques by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, particularly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug is a testament to their expertise.

The wool used in this rug is sourced directly from sheep in the Ghazni Province, renowned for its mountainous terrain that produces wool of exceptionally high quality. Following the careful collection of raw Ghazni wool, it is transported to the western side of Afghanistan near Herat. Here, the wool is meticulously hand-carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn, ensuring the highest standards of craftsmanship.

The weaving process takes place in the weavers' own homes, reflecting a cottage industry production model that has been passed down through the generations. The rugs are woven on traditional floor looms using an asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique. In this particular rug, a cotton warp and weft are used, while the pile consists of plush wool.

To enhance the durability and longevity of this remarkable rug, it features a double wefted structure with heavily packed depressed warp weaving. This meticulous construction technique ensures that it can withstand everyday use while maintaining its beauty.

Every color present in this rug is derived from all-natural dye stuffs, carefully crafted using centuries-old techniques. The captivating blue tones in this piece are achieved through the use of natural indigo dye, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant. Renowned for its vibrant and timeless appeal, indigo dye has been cherished by cultures worldwide for thousands of years.

Measured at 2'9" by 9'7", this rug is an impressive example of masterful craftsmanship. With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, there are a total of 299,926 individually hand-tied knots throughout this exquisite piece.

Embrace the artistry and heritage of Afghan rug weaving with this magnificent rug. Its contemporary design, traditional techniques, and all-natural dye materials make it a true work of art that will bring beauty and sophistication to any space.
