The intricate design features elephant footprints, a characteristic motif of Ersari rugs, adding a unique touch to the overall aesthetic. Made from high-quality materials, the rug is handwoven with precision, showcasing the traditional techniques passed down through generations. Its generous dimensions make it not only a visually striking décor element but also a functional and substantial floor covering. This rug serves as a testament to the enduring artistry and cultural significance of Afghan rug-making traditions.
