Introducing our exquisite Pakistani Sultanabad rug, boasting a traditional design that showcases the craftsmanship of the skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers. This stunning piece features a soothing green background adorned with an elegant ivory border. Made from high-quality wool on a cotton base, this new rug is a testament to the centuries-old tradition of rug weaving.

The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that naturally produces longer staple, oily wool ideal for carpet weaving. The raw wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is meticulously hand-carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn, ready for the weaving process.

Using traditional floor looms in their own homes, these talented weavers employ an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type to bring the design to life. The rug's cotton warp and weft, combined with a double-wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, ensure exceptional durability and longevity.

What truly sets this rug apart are the all-natural dyes used in its creation. Centuries-old dye stuffs are skillfully applied, resulting in rich and vibrant colors that are both striking and enduring.

Measuring an impressive size of 12'3" x 18'2", this rug features a knots per square inch (KPSI) count of 80. By calculating the KPSI, we estimate that this magnificent piece boasts a staggering 2,532,677 individually hand-tied knots.

Immerse yourself in the artistry and beauty of this Pakistani Sultanabad rug, painstakingly crafted by skilled weavers using time-honored techniques and premium materials. Add a touch of elegance and history to your space with this remarkable piece.
