Mushwani, Belouch.

N.W. Afghanistan,


2 m by 3 m

Made by semi nomads in the west of Afghanistan in a mixed technique ie pile and flat weave. This piece has a sculpted and luxurious feel.

The design is derived from the Belouch/ Turkoman tradition. Using madder and indigo as the main colours.

This is a particularly fine example of contemporary weaving.
Mushwani weavers produce many different designs, but always in these, earthy colours.

They look fantastic against a light wooden floor and modern interior.
