These rugs are woven by Afghan tribes people from the Kundoz region of North Eastern Afghanistan. Whilst the knot count of such rugs is no more than medium/low the use of local wools for both the pile and the foundation ensure that these rugs are both hard wearing and durable. The design usually features a typical ghul (sometimes referred to as elephant's footprint) design with many concentric borders. However, with this particular rug the centre panel ('field' ) has been left blank. Colours are typically warm, deep reds with border design picked out in either black or extremely dark blue.
This very unusual tribal rug measures 4 feet 8 inches long by 3 feet 2 inches wide. ( 1.42 x 0.97 metres ).
