This rug is a unique and handmade product

The Afshar are a Turkish speaking tribe, which migrated from north western Iran to the southeast of Iran around the city Kerman in the 16th century. Their rugs are known for mostly geometrical patterns. Strong reds, dark blues and even cream tones are often seen in Afshar rugs. The most common pattern consists of a large stretched centre piece which is phasing out in several squared medallions. Some people say, that this motif might symbolize the skin of animal, which is normally hung up by the nomads to be stretched out. They mix patterns show influences of their own traditions and designs from the city of Kerman. Although geometric motifs dominate, floral patterns can occur.
