Beautiful Room Size Soft Grey Modern Moroccan Style Afghan Rug / Country of Origin: Afghanistan/ Circa Date: Modern – This spectacular, trendy modern rug was created in Afghanistan using a combination of modern and ancient techniques. The Afghan rug draws its inspiration from vintage Moroccan rugs that were popular during the mid-20th century. The room size rug shows the familiar X pattern that was meant to represent a metalworker. For these ancient tribes, metalworkers were a respected profession. This modern area rug uses this traditional, tribal design and gives it an updated look by adding texture and a modern color scheme to this time-honored rug pattern.
This rug is the perfect addition to contemporary design with its high and low texture. This effect is created by alternating flat weave techniques with pile rug weaving techniques.
