Superb Old Hand Knotted Persian Rug Afshar / Shahr Babak Stunning Botech Design Afshar rugs were one of those Persian rugs that have a long and interesting history behind them. They were named after the nomadic Afshar people of southern Iran, who handwove them. These rugs have an interesting central element image by incorporating the stylized Boteh, which is an ancient Persian design that represents a cluster of leaves, with a pronounced arrowhead shape and beautiful flower pattern which sometimes entwined with lattices of leaves. Often versus the ivory colored field, they might include geometric pear shapes and hens as the border patterns of an Afshar. These mats looks quite similar to Shiraz, so they are commonly mistaken, even in the trade. Unlike the Shiraz weavers, Afshar weavers love colors that are bright and lively to brighten up their simple homes and tents. Because they were woven on simply constructed, easily dismantled and transportable horizontal looms on the ground, they’re quite small. A genuine piece of Afshar rug will bring life to any dull room because of its unique work of art and special vivid power. 286E
