Shepherd's rug are simply woven by the Nomadic people of Afghanistan. The rugs are woven for themselves, to help ease with the harsh winters. Once they longer have use of these rugs, they sell them off to rug collectors, just like us! Every tribal rug is unique to it's own self. There will never be two tribal rugs that are the exact same. Since these rugs are not woven for commercial use, they have quirks such as un-even sides, or colour differences throughout the rug; but that's what makes them so amazing.

The founder of Najaf Rugs, Najaf Mazari, learned the intricate art of making rugs at the age of 12 in his hometown of Mazar-E-Sharif in Afghanistan. In 2001, he arrived in Australia as a refugee and built this business from the ground up six months after his arrival. His passion for rugs still shows in every single rug he sources. There's no better decision than buying a rug from someone who knows every rug's ins and outs and how to weave one.
