Afshar is a handwoven rug style produced by the Turkic Afshar tribe, a semi-nomadic group principally located in the mountainous areas surrounding the modern region of Iranian Azerbaijan. An additional population of Afshar tribes-people is located in the Kuchan area in Razavi Khorasan Province of Iran and city of Kerman. Carpets in the Afshar style are known for their striking and stylized floral geometric designs, sophisticated tribal artistry and a characteristic palette of rust and blue color tones.

In the night field, 3 impressive Afshar ornaments, flanked by blossoms, tendrils and decorative animal figures. 2 borders cover the night blue flower border.

Antique Afshar rugs from the 19th century are characterized by their unusually and consistently high quality of craftsmanship and wool.

This rug was exported from Iran between 1890 - 1910

Will be shipped from Japan by Japan Postal Service.
