This is a hand-knotted Afghan rug, made of natural, durable materials.
The way of knotting and the diversity in the patterns make this rug unique and emphasise the authentic and artisanal character.

Afghanistan is located east of Iran and also borders Turkmenistan and Pakistan.
Afghan rugs have patterns in the shape of elephant's feet, ‘Göls’, or octagons (8 sides), often surrounded by angular flowers in dark blue or anthracite.

Afghan rugs are durable carpets, made of shiny wool, often of goats, on a woollen warp (bobbin thread).
They are good rugs for daily use, with a high durability.

This is a used rug, which has become more beautiful and richer in character due to the natural ageing process.

Main colour: red
Accent colours: anthracite
Details: lots of nap, clear colours, rich shine.
Signs of wear: Fringe is a little less on a few places: Lightly worn spots.
See the photos for your own assessment.
