Afghan Rugs are a very traditional craft in Afghanistan. These Oriental Rugs are considered a time honoured skill and is passed down from generation to generation.
Afghan Rugs are most often made with wool on wool construction from high-quality sheep's wool. The designs are usually rectilinear, oblong looking. They can be very symbolic yet simple and sophisticated. The two most popular colours in these rugs are shades of red and indigo.
These Oriental Rugs are considered to be some of the finest rugs around. Some of their most famous designs include the Turkman, Balouchi, and Mauri styles. Afghan rugs are still often made by nomadic tribes in Afghanistan.
The Afghan Rug is truly an expression of the weaver's culture. They are an authentic story of beautiful colours, symbols and design, truly, art for your home.
