famous and popular carpets from Afghanistan which have been woven by Turkmen
who lived in northern areas of the country are Khal Muhammadi Rugs or Turkman Carpets.
These rugs are unique due to their particular design and well-known figure.
The color of these rugs is mostly deep red with dark
blue and black in detail. The patterns of these rugs are of gol or filpa
repeated in one or more columns. These carpets
are produced by Afghan refugees on the Pak Afghan border line areas. The quality
of wool and weft is better than Aqcha rugs. Now high-quality rugs ‘Biljik’ and ‘Kunduz’
in these designs are produced by skilled persons around the town of Kunduz, a
town in the north of Afghanistan. The Khal Muhammadi carpets have the knot density
from 150000 to 230000 knots per square meter
