Ersari - Carpet - 410 cm - 280 cm
Wool on wool - Afghanistan - Early 20th century

Welcome to Passion d’Orient:

These hand-knotted rugs are made in northern Afghanistan. The term Ersari often refers to old Afghan rugs, from the name of a tribe living in the north of Afghanistan. These rugs are often in rust shades, and have large octagons as well as a smaller border than the one we find on more recent rugs. The current production of Afghan rugs consists mainly of nomadic works.
