Finding a rug can be difficult. There are so many choices and variables to consider. I found the designs and selection at Afganu Rugs to be wonderfully curated and appealing. It was easy to work with their team to customize a size that would work for my smallish floorplan. The rugs are simply gorgeous and the artisans have superb talent! I know that we’ll enjoy the rugs as true art pieces in our home. Thank you Afganu Rugs and artisans
