Introducing the magnificent rust background Tribal Suzani rug from Afghanistan. This stunning rug showcases the craftsmanship of Ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe. Made with wool sourced from the Ghazni Province, known for its mountainous terrain and high-quality wool, this rug features a durable wool-on-cotton construction.
Hand-carried and hand-spun into yarn in the Herat region, the Ghazni wool is then transformed into a work of art on traditional floor looms in the weavers' homes. The rug is woven using the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and showcases a double-wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique, ensuring its exceptional durability.
With a rich red main color derived from all-natural dye stuffs, including madder root dyes, this rug exudes warmth and adds a touch of sophistication to any space. The madder plant, scientifically known as Rubia tinctorum, has been cultivated for centuries for its dyeing properties. In this rug, the madder root dyes produce a range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades, creating a captivating visual appeal.
Measuring at 2'9" x 11'7", this rug features a knot density of 104 knots per square inch, totaling 473,496 individually hand-tied knots. Its tribal design and teal border add an element of cultural richness, making it a striking addition to any room.
Immerse your space in the artistry and history of this afghani Suzani rug. Experience the captivating allure of handwoven craftsmanship and the beauty of all-natural dyes with this exquisite piece.
