Afghan rugs share some similarities with other Oriental rugs. Part of the reason for this is the weavers of Afghanistan were among refugees and designs have transferred across regions. The history of the Afghan Rugs is based on the needs of nomads and designs and techniques vary by tribe. The uniqueness of Afghan rugs comes from quality wool, dyeing, washing and exquisite finishing techniques. Only master weavers have the expertise to weave and finish these rugs, with a specialty in an antique finished look.
Sadly, traditional hand weaving skills and heritage are being left behind in developing nations, making these beautiful rugs an appreciating asset you can hand down to generations of your loved ones.
