About Peshawar rugs: Peshawar rugs, from the historic khanate or administrative district of Afghanistan produced many highly decorative antique rugs that have a formality and stylistic complexity that is found in few rugs from the Caucasus. The depth of colors, the complexity of the composition and the phenomenal patterns featured in Peshawar rugs set them apart from those produced in other regions of the Caucasus. Peshawar, which was part of the Persian Empire, was populated by Azeri Turks and some Armenians, who were expert dyers and weavers. The format is generally long and narrow, which would have been preferred by consumers in the Caucasus.; The approximate year of origin: 2000-2010
