It resembles a tribal motif which makes it a beautiful piece for decorating contemporary and rustic spaces. It has a dimension of 5’5” x 10’1” which is ideal for living areas, bedrooms and dining rooms.
Afghan rugs are traditionally made in Afghanistan but since many of the tribes that made them were nomadic, it’s not surprising that the Afghan rug weaving style traveled far from its roots. In fact, many Afghan rugs are being made in Pakistan and other nearby regions. Common motifs seen in Afghan rugs are ‘Gul’ or repeating octagonal shapes and geometric patterns. Red is the favored color of the field with variations such as ochre and beige.
