This Persian Carpet-Kilim is the prize of the Gingerfinch rug collection. Featuring an elegant mulberry base in the striking Afshar style, this unique rug is made in a carpet-kilim combination. The result is a luxurious piece that feels incredible underfoot, with the soft, squishy carpet contrasting with the flat-weave kilim.
Made in Iran, Afshar Kilims are intricate and delicate. They feature layers of borders and diverse patterns in a durable yet soft-to-the-touch double-interlock weave.
This rug was sourced by Gingerfinch on a buying trip to carpet souqs in Northern Pakistan. We had never before seen a carpet-kilim combination and the effect is spellbinding. The carpet elements of the rug bring richness in feel and colour, with the kilim allowing the intricate patterns to shine. Needless to say, you'll treasure this rug for life.
A beautiful floor rug is a worthwhile investment. It makes a room feel considered and cozy, and it works as a great zoning device to define spaces in your home. Rugs can also be a fabulous way to introduce or emphasise your interior colour palette - picking up tones to add warmth or to break up wall-to-wall carpet.
This rug is one-of-a-kind. Once it's gone it's gone!

This rug was sourced by Gingerfinch founder, Peita Davis, on a carpet-buying trip to Northern Pakistan. Peita hand-picked each piece based on the rarity of the colour palette or the uniqueness of the manufacturing technique. The result is a rug collection that celebrates the very best in handmade Kilims.
