Description

One antique Afshar carpet cushion from a beautiful set of seven cushions hand-crafted from an antique Afshar carpet, which was sadly beyond restoration.  Dating from the late 19th century the natural dyes on these cushions are really stunning, with early greens, soft reds, blues and aubergine dyes. You can view all seven cushions by clicking here.

It is wonderful to be able to produce these hand-crated cushions using remnants of antique carpets.  Afshar is an area in Southern Persia, which produced varying designs.  These cushions have many of the colourful borders showing and some of the main design.  As this carpet was around 130 years old, there is some visible wear on every one of the cushions, adding wonderful character to each one.

These cushions have a deep blue corduroy backing and are filled with feather inserts, there is also a zip to remove the insert if needed.

Purchase this antique Afshar cushion online and we will safely deliver it to your home.  Alternatively arrange a visit to our barn showroom in Crondall, Surrey to see them all.
