Although this Afghan Kilim has a traditional design, the geometric shapes and use of sharp lines give it a contemporary feel. The background is woven in a deep, yet pastel-toned red colour and the hexagonal shapes are muted in comparison. Afghan Kilim design is rooted in the motifs knotted within flatwoven rugs hundreds of years ago in Persia and Anatolia.
The repetition of shapes and brighter yellows within the patterns lifts this piece and makes it appealing to the eye. The Kilim is hand knotted with hand spun Afghan wool, known for its strength and quality, and is an excellent piece for wide hallways or more narrow living rooms and bedrooms.
