Afshar rugs are similar to antique Caucasian rugs in their rug colors and styles. The feature geometric patterns, medallions with diamond patterns and pomegranate vases. Common colors include crimson, saffron gold, ivory, burnt orange and sienna. The design and colors used in Afshar rugs are reflective of the influences from outside regions making these highly stylized and unique rugs. Afshar rugs are quite distinguishable. Classic features of these antique rugs can include three pendants at either of the two ends (mostly in Sirjan designs), multiple diamond patterns (the number of diamonds can vary within a motif) and the tribal border, which is typical of all rugs made by this tribe. Another very noticeable feature is the medium ribbed back, which is a classic trait. Many antique rugs by this tribe can be found in homes worldwide, today. Some of them are well-preserved and retain their colors quite nicely.
There are many benefits to natural wool rugs. Not only are they incredibly soft and comfortable, there is also the benefit of natural wool being fire retardant, eco-friendly and biodegradable. The biggest benefit of natural wool is to your health. Natural wool and dyes are very safe for children, asthma and allergy sufferers because wool rugs reduce the dust in the air to more than half of that found on hard surfaces. Wool is the best fibre for a rug because it is a natural fibre so if you have pets such as dogs or cats their hair does not stick to the rug, it actually repels it and pet hair can be removed very easily by vacuuming the rug.
