The name Afshar derives from the tribe who designs and creates these rugs. This tribe is originally from Turkey and Turkmen Confederation, includes 24 other tribes. In the 16th century.
Afshar rugs are similar to antique Caucasian rugs in their rug colors and styles.
Afshar rugs are quite distinguishable. Classic features of these antique rugs can include three pendants at either of the two ends (mostly in Sirjan designs), multiple diamond patterns (the number of diamonds can vary within a motif) and the tribal border.
