Named for the gorge at the entrance to the legendary Khyber Pass, this collection is exclusive to Azhar‰۪s. It derives its name from an area largely settled by Turkoman tribes from Afghanistan. These rugs are often distinguished by their exquisite use of 100% vegetable dyes, a long-forgotten art now enjoying a renaissance in that part of the world.The influence of Persian, Turkoman and Afghan cultures results in rugs of great complexity and superb coloration.
Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
