The Afghanistan Project

A collection of one-of-a-kind, heirloom-quality Afghan rugs. Empowering a group of brave women committed to creating beauty against all odds.

Preserving An Ancient Craft

This initiative is to ensure the art and beauty of Afghan rugs lives on today. The rich history of carpet weaving runs through the heart of Afghanistan’s heritage, with prints, patterns, and techniques that have spanned thousands of years.

Behind the Designs

Crafted to Last for Generations

A true heirloom rug, you can trace the artistry in every hand-knot – and with over 80 knots per square inch, each rug takes up to 6 months to complete.
