This traditional Afghan rug displays multiple Central Asian motifs, symbolizing the protection of one’s family and blessings for one’s family. As these two concepts are most important for the Afghan people, it manifests itself not only in their handmade rugs but in their pottery, wood carvings and paintings as well. This accent rug will be a focal point in your room, transforming your space and allowing you to play with several colors of burgundy, lemon yellow and deep navy. With its rustic design aesthetic, this heritage rug will bring a joyful taste of culture into your life!
