Afghan rugs are renowned for their superb quality and splendid looks so there is certainly no shortage of demand for them. Rich colours from natural dyes and detailed motifs depicting animals and shapes are the hallmarks of these fine items.

Afghan rugs are just one type of exotic adornment used to supplement the decorative scheme of a room.
