Coarser than it's persian counterparts, and executed in geometric rather than floral patterns, Afghan Rugs have that unique charm of being the product of home-based family production, rather than workshop or factory made. Currently Afghanistan is the world leader in tribal carpet and kilim production, made with age old methods.
