Afghan Collection Farahan from Wool & Silk
The classic Persian Farahan design seen in antiques newly produced from Afghanistan.
The Afghan Collection is a project employing weavers in Afghanistan to produce a line of more traditional rugs with a coarser feel in classic patterns. The Farahan design is attributed to the Arak Region of West Central Persia. These thinner pile rugs are emulating original vintage and antique pieces in their appearance but are newly produced, hand knotted rugs of peerless quality.
Wool & Silk is a direct reflection of the heart and soul of its founder, Erbil Tezcan. Combining a joy for life and thoughtful design with a deep knowledge and appreciation of the rug industry, Wool & Silk consistently produces some of the most unique and progressive contemporary looks in the rug industry. Recipient of several international awards for carpet design, as judged by his own peers and the greater industry, Erbil Tezcan finds often inspiration in antique Asian tapestries and impressionist art, yet many of the most striking Wool & Silk designs originate from his own landscape photography. His zeal for life is only matched by his integrity in the belief that within the medium of the simple rug or carpet the potential for it to be elevated into a refined work of art exists. He is fond of saying that his designs "have to be colorful, like our lives."
