The main manufacturers of carpets in Afghanistan are the Turkseni, Beşirs and Ersari living there - not very numerous tribes that have been roaming the Afghan basins for years. The poor nomadic life was conducive to preserving the design and style of products in a state unchanged for generations

The carpet has been professionally cleaned and impregnated naturally by a specialist in handwoven rugs (orientserwis)
