Very Fine Afghan Mughal Rug
Hand knotted in northern Afghanistan by Hazara women using handspun Ghazni wool. This exquisite design is reminiscent of a Mansur flower “portrait”. Mansur was the most accomplished natural history painter under the fourth Mughal Emperor, Jahangir. His flower “portraits” started being utilized for general decorative use during the reign of Shah Jahan, the fifth Mughal Emperor of India who built the Taj Mahal.
After the weaving is completed, the rug undergoes a rigorous antiquing process. This type of carpet can easily take up to a year to produce, and ultimately culminates into a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, luxe carpet.
