Afghan Kazakh, northern Afghanistan

20th century


1.8 m by 3 m

Beautiful silky Ghazni wool and natural vegetable dyes mark out this new piece from Afghanistan as great weaving.

Produced by Turkoman weavers in the northern provinces of Afghanistan, but using designs from the Caucasus, these rugs have a vibrancy and piquancy of the best new weaving.

Note the sumptuous emerald green of the field, an unusual colour for oriental rugs.
