Description


These carpets made in Afghanistan villages and workshops by hand. Traditionally, the pattern is an elephant foot and Afghan carpets are famous for their beautiful red hue. Some key features of these carpets are the recurring Hexagone, the diamonds, the Yomut motifs and the pattern that resembles with an elephant footprint. The pile is usually medium to high. The wool is soft and therefore very durable. Often the wool has a slightly shining appearance.

Hand-knotted carpets are traditionally manufactured by nomads and farmers, today also in small workshops and factories manufactured. The tying warps are tension first on a Knüpfstuhl, which across the weft is woven into. The result is a basic fabric in that now - node node - the pile thread is tied up. Each finished linked railway is firmly pushed with a metal comb. The finer the pile thread and the higher the node density, the more valuable the carpet. Over the centuries various types of tying and node forms have emerged. Each region of origin also has its own patterns, colors, and materials.
