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, purple, blues, gold and black.
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 2 inches long by 5 feet 1 inch wide. ( 1.87 x 1.55 metres ).
