Introducing our Pakistani rug with a Turkmen design, boasting a traditional style that exudes timeless elegance. With a beige background and a striking red border, this rug effortlessly enhances any space with its sophisticated color scheme. Crafted with precision and care, this new rug is made from high-quality wool on a cotton base, ensuring both durability and comfort.

Originating from ethnic Turkmen weavers, primarily from the Esari Subtribe, this rug showcases their exceptional craftsmanship. The wool used in this rug is sourced from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for producing long-staple, high-quality wool perfect for carpet weaving. The raw wool is meticulously hand-carted and spun into carpet yarn in the western side of Afghanistan.

Weaved on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, this rug showcases the true essence of a cottage industry. With an asymmetrical Persian knot type and a wool pile on a cotton warp and weft, this rug exemplifies the most durable handwoven carpets available today. The double-wefted, heavily packed depressed warp weaving technique further ensures its longevity.

Embracing the tradition of centuries-old natural dyeing techniques, this rug features captivating shades achieved from all-natural dye stuffs. The color red, derived from natural madder root dyes, adds a touch of warmth and sophistication to this exquisite piece. Madder root dyes have been cultivated and used for dyeing for centuries, producing an array of red, orange, pink, and brown hues.

Highlighted by a knots per square inch of 162, this rug showcases the immense attention to detail and artistry involved in its creation. With 4,992,291 individually hand-tied knots, this rug is truly a labor of love.

Perfect for those who appreciate the artistry and craftsmanship behind Oriental rugs, our Pakistani Turkmen-designed rug adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any space. Its impeccable quality, durable construction, and all-natural dye colors make it a delightful addition to any discerning collector's repertoire.
