Description

Afghan rugs feature a variety of hand-woven patterns and colors, rendered in vegetable dyes. Most most traditional of these is the Gul, or elephant’s foot, which is usually presented in octagonal form in an array on the face of the rug. Afghan rugs are also frequently warm in color, featuring reds, wines, and browns. Afghan rugs also often feature nomadic motifs.


Afghan rugs can usually be divided into two types, Turkman carpets and Baluchi carpets, which tend to resemble the tribal weaving of Central Asia. Knot density for Afghan rugs varies from coarse to medium in weave. They include felted wool carpets, flat weaves, and knotted carpets made of wool, cotton and silk.


Afghan rugs are usually woven on small looms and are mainly produced to adorn the tents where the weavers reside. Skills are generational, and traditional designs do not vary much year over year, and are regarded as an important aspect of Afghan culture. Colors tend to be warm, with reds, browns and blues serving as the dominant colorway.
