Introducing an exquisite Afghani rug, this piece showcases a stunning contemporary design known as "Small Fish." Originating from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the southeastern region, this rug uses wool sourced from the locally raised sheep. The mountainous terrain of Ghazni contributes to the production of longer staple, higher quality wool, perfect for weaving carpets.
Crafted by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, particularly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug is a true testament to their expertise. Utilizing traditional floor looms, the weaving process takes place in the weavers' own homes, creating a cottage industry type production. The technique employed is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, with a cotton warp and weft, and a wool pile.
Notably, this rug boasts exceptional durability due to its double wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving. Such craftsmanship ensures that this handwoven masterpiece will withstand the test of time. Additionally, the use of centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs adds to its authenticity and charm.
Measuring at 2'0" x 3'1", this rug showcases a captivating design on a medium blue background with a grape-color border, adding a touch of elegance to any space. It is worth mentioning that this rug is new in condition, further guaranteeing its pristine quality.
With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, our meticulous calculations reveal that this rug is composed of 70,180 individually hand-tied knots. Each knot is a testament to the skill and commitment of the weavers, making this piece a truly remarkable work of art.
Transform your living space with this one-of-a-kind rug that combines magnificent Afghan craftsmanship, a contemporary design, and the finest materials. Discover the beauty and allure of this Afghani masterpiece in your own home.
