With its warm earthy colours, beautiful color changes called “abrash” in Turkish or “bi rang” in Farsi, this antique rug from the Baluch tribe of Afghanistan is the perfect addition to any room.

The design is made up of six rows of güles or octagonal motifs, woven quite irregularly in terms of size and color, resulting in a rug with a tribal air. The color changes are spectacular, giving this rug a unique depth and artistic touch. In the upper part, under the border, the weaver has incorporated an additional motif that has not been repeated in the lower part. All the gorgeous colours are achieved using only natural dyes. A unique rug full of tribal character.
