Ghazni: 300 x 86cm: A beautiful vegetable-dyed rug woven of hand-spun wool, also known as Afghan Kazak.
A highly popular rug runner, Ghazni is best known for the "abrash” or marbled effect. The technique involves spinning the yarn so tight by hand so that the dyes do not permeate the yarn evenly, creating an uneven, but beautiful natural-looking, marbled effect.
The designs incorporated in Ghazni rugs are mostly those from the ancient Caucus, hence, reflecting a strong Caucasian influence. Ghazni rugs incorporate vegetable dyes, and 100% hand-spun wool from the Ghazni region, known for the quality of its wool.
