Aqcha carpets, deservedly popular among Afghan carpets, were named after the city of Aqcha in northern Afghanistan. These hand-knotted carpets are dominated by different shades of red. In addition to the colour scheme, the pattern is also very distinctive and repetitive, making these textiles virtually unmistakable with other similar products.

This type of carpet is made around the city of Aqcha, in northern Afghanistan, in an area inhabited by nomads and villagers with an elephant sole and Maori pattern. It lends a unique atmosphere to our home, with its varied colours. This carpet is washed and dried in the sun four times after preparation and shearing, and it is also colour-fastening. Many people think that the denser and thicker the carpet, the better and more durable it is. Thickness is a matter of shear. Durability is the result of the density of the knot and the associated material quality.
