Afshar Rugs at Artists Forum

Hand-woven rugs from West Azarbaijan Province are showcased at Iranian Artists Forum (IAF) in Tehran.
The exhibition opens today at 7 pm and will run through September 12. On display is a collection of Afshar rugs, known as iron carpets for their resistance against wear and tear.
The rugs are mainly made in Takab, one of the centers for production of Afshar rugs since the Safavid era, ILNA reported.
Galleries of Nami and Bahar-Khaneh at IAF are hosting the ‘Afshar Rug Cultural Week.’
Afshar is a hand-woven rug style produced by the Turkic Afshar tribe, a semi-nomadic group principally located in the northwestern mountainous regions of Iran.
Carpets in the Afshar style are known for their striking and stylized floral geometric designs, sophisticated tribal artistry and a characteristic palette of rust and blue color tones.
IAF is located on Iranshahr Street.
