Afshar rugs, also called Kerman-Afshar rugs, are handmade by semi-nomadic Afshars in the region of Kerman in south-eastern Iran. These highly stylized Persian Rugs are a unique example of nomadic and village techniques combined into a single scheme. Common coloration include crimson, saffron, gold, ivory, and burnt sienna.
Antique Afshar rugs, prized for high quality materials, craftsmanship, and unique aesthetic, make stunning floor pieces and excellent wall hangings. The best 19th century Afshar rugs are in extremely limited supply and are widely sought after by mature collectors of antique Oriental and Persian carpets.
Decorating with Antique Rugs is like using artworks that have a timeless quality which is always “in style.” They are infinitely versatile and work with any room to integrate the architecture, furnishings and other artworks of the space. Creating decor that expresses a balance and harmony in their own right, they have the ability of carrying that quality into the settings in which they’re placed.
