Gorgeous Ruby color Afghan Bokhara rug, 7' x 10'. Very nice condition. 2 of the most popular carpets from Afghanistan are Khal Mohammadi and Afghan Aqche. Khal Mohammadi are handmade by the Turkomans in the north of Afghanistan, and in some cases they can also be hand knotted in Pakistan by the Turkomans who have crossed over the borders into Pakistan. The primary colors are dark red in different nuances. Occurring motifs are göls (elephant like pattern) and octagonal (eight shaped) often with curvilinear flowers in dark blue, ochre and beige. Afghan Aqche carpets are handmade by the Turkomans in central and north Afghanistan. Pile, warp and weft consists of wool, goat and sometimes also horse hair.
