A vintage Afshar rug, 158079-220x168

This village rug holds a unique charm. The Afsharis of central Persia stand as one of the oldest nomadic groups renowned for their weaving traditions, both nomadic and village-based. The carpet featured here is a testament to their exceptional craftsmanship, highlighting their remarkable ability to create rich and vibrant colours through the use of natural materials.

The wool used in these carpets is sourced from their production, and the yarn is spun traditionally and handcrafted. The designs are rich in archetypal motifs, often emerging from the weaver's subconscious and thus imbued with profound symbolic meaning.
