Named for the gorge at the entrance to the legendary Khyber Pass, this collection is exclusive to Azhar’s. It derives its name from an area largely settled by Turkoman tribes from Afghanistan. These rugs are often distinguished by their exquisite use of 100% vegetable dyes, a long-forgotten art now enjoying a renaissance in that part of the world.
The wool comes from Himalayan sheep and is hand-spun and hand-knotted with great care and marvelous craftsmanship. The influence of Persian, Turkoman and Afghan cultures results in rugs of great complexity and superb coloration.
