Afghani rugs are typically made from natural plant or animal fibers, such as silk, wool, cotton, jute, and sisal.... No two rugs may look exactly alike because the natural fiber will always have discrepancies in the coloring.
If you have used or seen Afghani rugs you know that they are amazing. Their pile is low and dense, and they last forever.
Besides good quality material, the knot is also important in the rug production process, Typically, Turkish knot or Persian knot (depending on what the design calls for) are used in the production of Afghani rugs. These knots are the most durable on the planet and they show off the traditional dyeing process that produces a naturally lustrous sheen.
Afghani rugs perform well in contract settings like hotel lobbies and conference rooms. This is heirloom qualityas well as in at homes and apartments. These rugs can be passed on to your kids, or grandkids as a lasting memory and portion of your estate.
The Mashwani are a nomadic tribe scattered across Afghanistan. They owe much of their weaving heritage to Baluch neighbors, from whom they adopted repetitive geometric patterns and the habit of weaving kilims in a combination of different techniques: weft-faced patterning (a type of flat weave), weft wrapping (soumak) and knotted pile.
