This rug, and the group of which it is a part, are all exceptionally well made from the best quality materials. The designs are well organized with a strong composition and design. Borders are beautiful, particularly the corner motifs.
Wool: The wool in these rugs is called "hand spun Ghazni" because traditionally Ghazni is the province in Afghanistan from which the best wool originates. A few years ago though, warrug.com learned that in addition to Ghazni wool, Afghan weavers are importing high quality raw wool from Iraq and Saudi. Sheen: Excellent Handle: Firm. Selvedge: Inexplicably, the natural selvedge of this rug has been removed and a supplemental selvedge sewn over the cut edge. Warrug.com was told this is a feature, but it seems like a bug. Warrug.com suspects the native selvedge was rolling under, so it was replaced, but that is speculation.
Fringe: 4 inches white cotton. Persian closure Pile: 5mm woolWarp: White cottonWeft: One cord red, probably cotton, and another cord of white, also likely cotton.
Warp Depression::Full warp depression, a.k.a. double knotted. Each knot, or pixel, in a rug uses two adjacent warp threads. When the warps are not depressed, they sit on the same plane, so they appear flat on the back, and from the back you can see both nodes. When the warps are full depressed, one warp sits almost on top of the other warp, so when viewed from the back, one can only see one node of each knot.
