Afghan rugs, produced in Afghanistan, are among the most unique within their origins. The weavers of the cultural melting pot of Afghanistan, Balouch, Turkmen, Kazakh and Uzbek come together, each bringing something unique from their countries of origin. There are a plethora of designs, with their use of intricate elephant’s foot guls, vivid reds, ornamental borders and decorative end pieces providing a level of stylistic continuity. Using natural dyes, tribal weavers created a tremendous color palette of red hues that range from deep aubergine brown to warm burnt orange. These vibrant colors are traditionally paired with clear blue and ivory accents.
