 *Message was: Hello,
David is right on the money. A 15 by 5 is a normal size particularly for Hazara homes. The Hazara live in the central highlands and are not widely known as weavers by the west. An odd size like that means it was made for domestic use not export.
Best wishes,

: Hey Vic,

: I'm am currently in Afghaistan. It has been explained to me by rug dealers that the rooms in homes in this part of the world are long and narrow. Sometimes rugs are woven to fit a certain size room.

: Hope this helps

: David

: : I was given a large Killim. The size of it is 16'x5', the size seems a little odd to me (Just started learning about rugs)is it made on that size for a specific purpose? Thanks for your help.

: : Victor
