Inspired by the Arts and Crafts aesthetic developed in the late 1800s, this humble Afghan Arts and Crafts Rug is a fine example of quality craftsmanship and design. This rug features shapes that mimic nature, with slightly geometric floral heads and adjoining vines cascading across the piece, taking inspiration from the iconic works of William Morris.
The light blue colours featured throughout this Afghan rug give a subtle nod to its Persian roots and complement the ivory detailing. This combination of light, subtle tones conveys a sense of luxury and elegance. Natural vegetable dyes were used to colour the fine sheep’s wool of this Afghan Arts and Crafts Rug before being hand-knotted by master weavers using small looms. As a result, this rug is very durable, making it suitable for any high traffic area.
The continuous all-over pattern and muted tones of this piece allow it to complement most interiors as it won’t challenge any other patterns in a space with bold traditional elements. The sharp edges of the floral designs would also suit a more modern interior, making this Arts and Crafts rug a versatile choice.
