Introducing our exquisite Afghan rug, originating from the region of Afghanistan known for its skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, particularly the Esari Subtribe. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this contemporary rug features a captivating small fish design. The background showcases a lush grass hue, while the border adds a touch of grape color.
This rug is made using traditional techniques, with all wool derived from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain of this region naturally produces longer staple oily wool, known for its superior quality in carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, around Herat, where it undergoes hand carding and spinning into carpet yarn.
The weaving process takes place in the homes of skilled artisans, fostering a cottage industry type production. Utilizing an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, the weavers expertly create this rug on traditional floor looms. The rug boasts a durable construction, with a cotton warp and weft and a wool pile tightly packed between double wefts. This results in a resilient and long-lasting handmade carpet.
To enhance its timeless appeal, centuries-old natural dye stuffs are used to color the rug, adding depth and richness to the design.
Measuring 2'0" x 3'2", this rug is a perfect addition to any space, adding a touch of elegance and cultural heritage. With a knot count of 80 knots per square inch, we have calculated that this rug features an impressive total of 72,078 individually hand-tied knots.
This rug exemplifies the rich craftsmanship and cultural heritage of Afghan artisans. Immerse yourself in its beauty and bring a piece of Afghanistan into your home or space.
