Afghan carpets are hand-woven rugs traditionally made in Afghanistan, many of which however are also woven by Afghan refugees residing in Pakistan. Names of Afghan carpets refer to the region of origin or the name of the tribe that makes them. Many pattern and colours are used, but the primary ones are dark red in different nuances. The traditional and most typical motif is octagonal elephant’s foot. Afghan carpets are among the finest rugs made in the world today. Each is exclusively designed and is a unique work of art with its individual colour palette.
