Mashvani is a kilim and carpet mix with Sumac (embroidery), three techniques in one, produced by the Mashvani, a tribe of Herat, in southwestern Afghanistan. A master weave, it is also known as the Barjista kilim. Designs are always geometric and most of the pieces come in square and rectangular sizes, as well as runners. It is made with fine Beljic wool, which has a velvety feel. Mashvani carpets are famous these days because of their uniqueness, and they are made by very skilful women in Afghanistan.
