Introducing the exquisite Afghan Zechour rug, showcasing a captivating design and rich heritage. This tribal-style rug hails from Afghanistan, specifically the Ghazni Province in the southeastern region. Renowned for its mountainous terrain, this area fosters the growth of high-quality, longer staple wool, which forms the essence of this remarkable piece.

Crafted by skilled ethnic Turkmen weavers, with a focus on authenticity, this rug predominantly features the unique Zechour design. The background exudes a sophisticated shade of graphite, while the vibrant tangerine border adds a touch of warmth and vibrancy. The overall color palette is anchored by a striking grey hue, creating a visually pleasing and harmonious composition.

The craftsmanship of this rug is truly exceptional. Woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' own homes, it represents a cherished cottage industry. The use of an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type, combined with a cotton warp and weft structure and a wool pile, results in a durable and high-quality textile.

To further highlight the craftsmanship, each knot has been meticulously hand-tied, with a density of 80 knots per square inch. In total, this rug boasts an impressive 1,245,705 individually tied knots, showcasing the immense dedication and skill of the weavers.

In addition to its impeccable craftsmanship, this rug employs centuries-old natural dye techniques, ensuring the colors remain vibrant for generations to come. Furthermore, the use of 2-ply yarn per knot enhances the overall structural integrity and longevity of the piece.

Featuring dimensions of 9'3" x 11'10", this Afghan Zechour rug is a testament to the artistry and cultural heritage embedded within each woven fiber. Whether displayed as a focal point in a living space or cherished as a collector's item, this rug holds immense beauty and storytelling capabilities.

Immerse yourself in the allure of this Afghan Zechour rug, a captivating testament to the rich traditions and skillful craftsmanship of its makers.
