Introducing our exquisite Central Asian Antique Yomut Tribal Rug. This rug boasts a rich burgundy background with a multi-colored border, creating a visually captivating design. Its origins can be traced back to the tribal weavers of Central Asia, with most of them hailing from the Esari Subtribe.
Handcrafted with meticulous care, this rug features a wool-on-wool construction, ensuring durability and longevity. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan. These mountainous terrains provide the perfect conditions for high-quality, long-staple wool, sought after for its durability and softness.
Woven on traditional floor looms by skilled weavers in their own homes, this rug showcases the authentic craftsmanship of these ethnic Turkmen weavers. The asymmetrical "Persian" knot type used in this rug enhances its unique appeal. With a cotton warp and weft, and a double wefted heavily packed depressed warp weaving, this rug is built to withstand the test of time.
Dating back to circa 1925, this antique rug embraces the allure of the past. Its vibrant red hue is achieved through the use of natural madder root dyes. Madder root dyes, derived from the Rubia tinctorum plant, have been used for centuries and offer a range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades.
This rug showcases a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 80 and boasts a remarkable 2008921 individually hand-tied knots in total. Each knot is a testament to the dedication and skill of its weaver.
