New production from Hazara and Turkoman weavers in the North of Afghanistan. These rugs are rugged, use great quality Ghazni wool, natural dyes and designs borrowed from the Caucasian tradition.

They are incredibly well woven, reflecting the long and proud history of weaving in Afghanistan. For commercial production they have subtle character and good abrash. Much prized in tribal rugs.

A good advert for the continuing health of the hand weaving tradition, even in very difficult times!
