Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug, featuring the timeless Timani design with tribal influences. This rug embodies the spirit of its origin, boasting a rich heritage from Afghanistan. Crafted by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, predominantly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug is a true work of art.
The captivating background of this rug is a deep denim shade, which perfectly complements the vibrant green border. The main color of this handwoven masterpiece is a striking blue, achieved through the use of natural indigo dye stuffs. The history of indigo as a dye dates back thousands of years, and its timeless appeal is evident in this rug.
Every detail of this rug showcases the precision and expertise of the weavers. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type adds a distinctive charm, while the wool on cotton content ensures a luxurious and durable texture. The wool used in this rug hails from the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that produces longer staple oily high-quality wool. The raw Ghazni wool is carefully hand-carried and spun into carpet yarn, ready for the intricate weaving process.
Speaking of weaving, this rug is meticulously created on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, highlighting the cottage industry aspect of its production. The double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique makes this rug one of the most durable handwoven carpets available today.
Measuring at 3'4" x 5'1", this rug is the perfect size to elevate any space. With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80, we have determined that there are approximately 192,835 individually hand-tied knots in this rug.
