An Afghan Feraghan Rug with a classic design and a contemporary balance of colours. The soft abrashed grey ground colour contrasts with turquoises, golds, blues and reds to make the palmettes, flowers and fronds stand out against the more mellow background.
The rug has a highly decorative, fluid floral design which is enhanced by the long frond patterns woven into this piece. This also adds to the slight contemporary feel of the rug.
Afghan Feraghan Rugs have their design roots in Persian Feraghan Rugs, and these can be traced back to the 1800s. Feraghan Rugs feature complex floral patterns and both soft and rich colours. It is plain to see that this design tradition has been carried forward into this Afghan Feraghan, with the central palmettes being particularly ornate.
Afghan Rugs such as this one are hand knotted using Afghan wool, which possesses excellent durability and lustrous qualities. Combined with the expert weave, this piece could last a lifetime if it was well looked after.
Because of the more contemporary colouring, this traditional rug is suitable for both classic and more modern interiors. It can sit well against both pastel and rich colours and can be placed in any room.
