Afghan Kazak

This production has evolved from the Afghan people who are now weaving, once again, in Kabul. Invariable the rugs are sent through the Khyber Pass into the western frontier town of Peshawar where they are exported all over the world.

Kazaks are handmade in traditional Afghan and Caucasian designs often using natural dyes and local wool. Their patterns are simple and always geometric.

The colours are rich reds, blues, rusts and gold with touches of natural white. Sometimes they are washed and left out in the sun to soften the colour to give a more aged appearance.

They are available from .90cm x .60cm up to 5.50m x 3.66m.
