Today we present something very special from Beyondknots:Samarkand carpets. 

They have now become a fairly rare carpet style. The patterns of the Samarkand are mostly inspired by traditional Kelim patterns. Typical are strips or geometric shapes. Samarkand carpets are hand-knotted, vegetable dyed and made of pure virgin wool from the Central Afgan mountain country at Ghazni. The Ghazni wool is considered to be particularly high as the sheep in certain heights produce a finer wool through improved air quality. The namesake and the original location of these unique carpets is the city of Samarkand, a city in Uzbekistan with 350,000 inhabitants.
The modern Samarkand carpets combine traditional craftsmanship and classic oriental ornaments with modern shapes and colors, making a contemporaryDesign claim is made. More often to find under the name Khorjin (Khurjeen), they are only hand-linked by nomades in Afghanistan and then transported to Pakistan to be cleaned and completed there.
