Afghan

The Afghan rug belongs to the group of Central Asian rugs. The expression "Afghan" stands for Afghani rugs which are made in the areas of the production centers Aqcha, Andkhoi and Kunduz in the Northern province of Turkestan. The Afghan rug is made by members of the Turkmen tribes who either settled down in that area or who are Half-Nomads made. They are made with horizontal looms which is very rare. The main part of the significant production comes from the domestic works of settled peasants, but some also from manufactories or nomadic production.
