These rugs are Turkoman tribal rugs from Northern Afghanistan using local Ghazni hand spun wool, which is probably the best wool in the world for hand knotted rugs. These Hazara tribes people are mostly Shia Muslim and badly persecuted by the Taliban majority. Beautifully finished with bound fringes, we have rarely found such a special collection of such gorgeous rugs. Very finely knotted in hand spun wool and natural dyes which means they will last over generations.
Hand-made in Afghanistan from wool. This rug contains approximately 1097400 knots, and would have taken 183 days to weave and finish.
Every pile rug has a nap so that the pile lies in one direction. This means there is a lighter end and and darker end for each rug which is why there are photographs from both ends.
We highly recommend purchasing this rug with our top quality German underlay as it vastly improves the life of your carpet and guards against slipping accidents.
It has a 10 year non-stick, non-crumble guarantee. To learn more click here.
