Camel is a subject of amusement for many. It is a strange creature that has travelled along the silk road for over two thousand years. It fascinates the western world and particularly the youth as a creature from the mysterious lands of Sindbad and thousand and one nights.
For some nomads, the camel means life and the only to reach out of their isolated habitats. It is a celebrated animal to the extent that the counting unit for it, "nafar", is the same as that used for humans.
The rug here celebrates the animal, which is a symbol of perseverance, strength to overcome hardships, and patience for the weavers.
This carpet is unique for the colour combination and the exceptional quality of the wool.
