The Carpets of Afghanistan

Richard D Parsons

Traditionally nomadic, the sheep-herding peoples of Afghanistan have an ancient tradition of making carpets, the design patterns of which typically follow tribal and even family traditions. This introduction to the Afghan carpet industry describes how they are made and sold, identifies the regional differences in style and manufacture and explains the origins and meanings of various decorative motifs by reference to over 150 representative examples.
