Aqche (also Aqcha) are handmade by Turkmen living in the central part of the Afghan Province of Jowzjan around the town of Aqcha. Deep reds are their usual primary colour with octagonal rose, elephant foot and stylised flower motifs in dark blue.
Khan Mohammadi (also Khal Mohammadi) are so called because they are made on looms in Mazar-i-Sheriff, Andkhoy, and Kunduz in northern Afghani- stan belonging to the famous Turkmen Ersari rug dealer Khal Mohammad. The key to his success is extremely innovative use of natural dyes – in particular his natural reds are exquisite. Additionally the workmanship, wool quality, and finish are of a very high quality.
