Collection: Afshar Rugs

Afshar rugs are a type of handwoven rug style produced by the Turkic Afshar tribe. This semi-nomadic group is principally located in the mountainous areas surrounding the modern region of Iranian Azerbaijan. An additional population of Afshar tribes-people is located in the Kuchan area in Razavi Khorasan Province of Iran and the city of Kerman. Around the city of Kerman in the southeast of Iran reside the semi-nomads from the Afshar tribe. For hundreds of years, these nomads lived in the northwest of Iran, but a part of the tribe was compulsorily transferred to today’s area, where carpet manufacturing became an important branch of business.
