This Afghani rug features the iconic Tabriz design, known for its traditional style and intricate patterns. The rug has a light blue background with a rust-colored border, and the main color is blue. Crafted from high-quality wool on a cotton foundation, this new rug boasts durability and longevity.

The Tabriz design originates from the ancient city of Tabriz in northwestern Iran, which has been renowned for its handmade Persian wool rugs for centuries. Influenced by various art forms, such as manuscript illuminators and silk embroiderers, Tabriz weavers created curvilinear designs on wool rugs, which were introduced to the courts in Istanbul. The city's rich history includes occupations by empires like the Mongols and Timurids, as well as the Persian Safavids, who actively developed a Persian culture in art and architecture.

Tabriz carpets are known for their exquisite details and high quality. They feature medallion, allover, and hunting motifs, along with floral designs. These rugs are woven with a cotton foundation and a wool pile, utilizing the dominant Turkish knot, although Persian knots can also be found. Tabriz rugs have gained recognition worldwide and can be found in museums, private collections, and antique markets.

The rug's origin lies in the tribal region of South East Afghanistan, where the ethnic Turkmen weavers mainly come from the Esari subtribe. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province, known for its mountainous terrain, which produces longer staple oily higher quality wool for carpet weaving. The wool is then brought to Herat, where it is meticulously hand carded and hand-spun into carpet yarn.

Woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' homes, this rug showcases the skill and craftsmanship of the Turkmen people. With an asymmetrical Persian knot type, cotton warp and weft, and a wool pile, this rug is double wefted and heavily packed, ensuring durability and longevity. Traditional dye stuffs made from natural indigo produce the beautiful blue color of this rug. Indigo, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, has been used for thousands of years to create vibrant blue hues.

With a knots per square inch count of 162, this rug boasts exceptional craftsmanship. In total, there are approximately 2,461,931 individually hand-tied knots, showcasing the weaver's dedication to creating a stunning piece of art.

Experience the beauty and craftsmanship of this Tabriz-inspired Afghani rug, which captures the rich history and traditions of Persian carpet weaving. Add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your home with this meticulously crafted rug that will stand the test of time.
