Produced by nomads and villagers in southeastern Iran in the cities of Shiraz, Kerman and Yazd, these antique oriental rugs are some of the few that merge nomadic and village techniques. The name Afshar derives from the tribe who designs and creates these rugs (also known as the Avsar). They came to Persia and Turkey by way of Iran as part of the Ohguz Turkmen Confederation, which includes 24 other tribes. In the 16th century, Ohguz was more of a principality, rather than a kingdom. The language is still well-preserved and spoken today by people whose ancestors originated from this tribe. Weaving has always been a major part of the artistic creativity of this tribe, and it is not likely to diminish at any time as it is traditionally taught from one generation to the next.
