Afghan Carpets and Rugs
Afghan carpets and rugs, as the name suggests, originated from the Afghanistan region. Handmade Afghan carpets, like tribal rugs, are well-known for their eye-catching details and intricate design patterns.
Despite being a war-affected nation for years, the Afghanistan textile industry still produces Handmade Afghan rugs, which are very popular worldwide. The carpets and rugs are mainly woven by the Turkmen craftsmen and artisans residing in Afghanistan, people from some parts of Uzbekistan and the Afghan refugees who are now in Pakistan. These groups of people are also categorized as Kirghiz, Kazakhs, Uzbeks, Arabs, and Baluchi to label the carpets in the name of their group accordingly.
Afghan Rugs are primarily rectangular in shape and red in colour. An octagonal shape is a must-include in every Afghan Carpet design, mostly called Gul (the Persian Word – “flower”). At Carpet Thailand, we showcase the original Afghan Rugs hand-knotted by real Afghani peoples and tribes.
