Presenting an exquisite Afghan rug featuring the timeless and intricate Vase Tabriz design. This tribal-style rug showcases a captivating blue background with a teal border, creating a striking visual contrast. Crafted with care by skilled Ethnic Turkmen weavers, mostly from the Esari Subtribe, this rug embodies the rich weaving traditions of Afghanistan.
The wool used in this rug originates from the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, where the mountainous terrain yields longer staple, oilier, and higher-quality wool, ideal for carpet weaving. The raw Ghazni wool is then transported to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it is hand carted and spun into carpet yarn, ready for the weaving process.
Using traditional floor looms, the weavers meticulously create this rug in their own homes as part of a cottage industry. Employing the asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, the weavers ensure exceptional durability and longevity. The foundation of the rug consists of cotton warp and weft, while the luxurious pile is crafted entirely from wool.
One distinguishing feature of this rug is its double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving, which enhances its durability and stability. This meticulous technique contributes to creating one of the most durable handwoven carpets available today.
Adding to its allure, this rug boasts all-natural dye stuffs used in centuries-old dyeing practices. The captivating blue color is derived from natural indigo dye, sourced from the leaves of the indigo plant (indigofera tinctoria). Indigo, renowned for its vibrant blue hues, has been used by various cultures worldwide for thousands of years.
With 80 knots per square inch, this rug exhibits exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail. By calculating the KPSI (knots per square inch) of our rug, we estimate that it comprises a remarkable 1,251,878 individually hand-tied knots.
Immerse your living space in the captivating beauty of this Afghan rug. Its grand size, measuring 9'2" x 12'0", makes it the perfect centerpiece for any room. Experience the timeless charm, exceptional craftsmanship, and rich cultural heritage that this remarkable rug embodies.
