Afghan rugs and carpets

Rugs and carpets produced in Afghanistan can be separated into two main groups. Firstly the Turkoman rugs and carpets which are manufactured by the Turkoman tribes who migrated into what became Afghanistan in the seventeenth century. Secondly the modern Afghan rug and carpet group which use traditional designs from tribes such as the Tekke, Beshir, Yomut, Salor, Ersari, and Saryk. these weavers are not Turkoman  but Afghans who have learnt the skills from the Turkoman tribes. New production Afghan rugs and carpets can be quite fine and are known within the trade as Khanmohamadi and Kunduz.
