Afghan Tribal Kelim
This fine tribal Afghan piece includes all of the 3 major weaving types; piled weaving, soumak weaving and kelim weaving. Each of these types of weaving is done by hand but each type is a totally different and unique process.
The colours are bright and yet rich and include reds, blues, and cream.
This rug is particularly practical and hard wearing - it is also very good value for money.
Another useful feature of these rugs is their size and shape. The rug can be used as a decorative hanging on a wall or a chimney breast as well as being used as a throw over items of furniture or even as a bedspread/decoration.
This beautiful example measures 6 feet 1 inch long by 5 feet 5 inches wide. ( 1.84 x 1.66 metres ).
