This item is part of the Ghazni Agra Rugs collection, which is a range of ultra-luxurious hand-knotted original traditional carpets. Ghazni is an Afghan town famed for its apricots and for its sheep; sheep which produce some of the longest and toughest wool in the world, ideally suited to rug making. In the workshops in Agra, wool of this outstanding quality is used in the traditional hand-knotting of these re-interpreted oriental design classics. The highest level of traditional craft and materials combines with colours adjusted to suit modern, more subdued tastes. The Gazani Agra rugs are long lasting and will never lose their value.
