This Afghani rug features a traditional Tabriz design, known for its intricate artistic details and historical significance. Tabriz rugs originate from the ancient city of Tabriz in northwestern Iran, which has a rich cultural heritage in Oriental art and craftsmanship. The city has been producing handmade Persian wool rugs since the 15th century, and it continues to be the largest producer of these rugs in the world.

This rug showcases a captivating blend of colors, with a mint background and a striking red border. The main color of the rug is refreshing green, adding a vibrant touch to any space. The rug is made from high-quality wool on a cotton foundation, ensuring durability and comfort.

With a size of 8'11" x 12'4", this rug is perfect for creating a focal point in a larger room or adding warmth and elegance to a more intimate space. Its size and design make it versatile, allowing for seamless integration into various interior styles, from traditional to modern.

The weaving technique employed in this rug is the asymmetrical "Persian" knot, which adds depth and detail to the intricate patterns. It features a cotton warp and weft, with all-wool pile for added softness and resilience. The double wefting and densely packed depressed warp weaving make this rug exceptionally durable.

This rug is handwoven by skilled Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari subtribe. The wool used in its creation comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain and high-quality wool. The raw Ghazni wool is hand carted and spun into carpet yarn in Herat, on the western side of Afghanistan, where the cottage industry-type production takes place.

The rug incorporates all-natural dye stuffs, providing a timeless and authentic touch to its colors. The red color in particular is derived from madder root dyes, known for their warm and cool shades of red, orange, pink, and brown. Madder root dyes have been used for centuries in various cultures around the world.

With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162, this rug showcases the exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail of its weavers. It boasts a total of 2,554,201 individually hand-tied knots, a testament to the level of skill and dedication put into its creation.

This Afghani rug, with its Tabriz design and unique historical significance, is a captivating addition to any space. Its vibrant colors, intricate patterns, and exceptional craftsmanship make it a timeless and versatile piece that will be cherished for generations to come.
