Outta Rugs

Afghan rugs are considered as one of the traditional crafts that are of the greatest antiquity in Afghanistan. While the techniques of this particular rug making have been handed down over 2,500 years, a group of craftspersons decided to employ motifs of the decade of the war in Afghanistan (1978-1988) in its designs, making it possible to create unprecedentedly unique patterns by expressing the cruelty of the war through the eyes of the Afghan people, the affluent nature of the land and the changes of the time.

Those unique rugs - with the motifs of colorful deformed guns and caterpillars, cities and nature - were initially made for private purchases. However, as the value as a artistic/historical material started to receive recognition, the rare and wonderful rugs now attracts a number of collectors all over the world. Uniquely imported by Vacant, our items in the ’Outta Rugs’ series are all one of a kind.
