This rug is part of our Aryana line. The Aryana carpets are woven by Turkmen weavers in Northern Afghanistan. This rug was woven using the Ersari knot, which is an asymmetrical or Persian knot. The weaving is of medium fineness, approximately 90 knots per square inch. The rug is made from all natural dyes. The name Aryana is an ancient name for the Central Asian region which includes northern Afghanistan. This line of rugs was one of our earliest creations. Yayla has been making the Aryana line since 1991.
