Mashwani rugs from Afghanistan use a combination of a flat weave (kilim) technique and traditional Senneh knot for their construction. The Tribal Mashwani Collection features designs that have been woven for centuries by Mashwan tribes in the mountains of central Afghanistan. The symbols in the rugs are from traditional tribal patterns, often one-way, and the end result is a beautiful, vibrant rug of wonderful quality. The fine, supple weave has the look and handle of old Caucasian or Turk-men rugs . Mashwani rugs is unusually bright and colorful, featuring a densely patterned design of pink and orange or red diamonds.
