It is a difficult and time consuming job to craft Herati rugs as they require closed weave in different contortions within a little surface. Baluch tribes of Afghanistan are renowned for their specially crafted wool rugs with traditional ways of weaving mostly by the women folk of that area. To be in line with the latest techniques, many weavers have implemented the technique of weaving and artworks from other countries like turkey, Iran etc in their interweaving styles.

There are number of ethnic groups which are specially known for their rug arts such as Andkhoy, Sulayman, Aq Shah, Barmazid, Qarqueen etc. According to the ethnic groups, Afghan Rugs are divided into three various major categories which are Afghan Turkestan, Baluch, and Herati. Prized for their high quality and fine craftsmanship, Afghan Rugs are easily recognized by their characteristic patterns, often set in warm, deep red colour tones.

Signature Afghan patterns include the Göls (elephant foot like pattern) and octagonal pattern (eight shaped) often with curvilinear flowers in dark blue, ochre and beige, whilst Pakistani carpets are typically known for their Mori, Bhokara patterns. Various natural and vegetable dyes are used to extract the richness of colors. Many patterns and colors are used, traditionally the most woven design is the elephant's foot, often with a red background. The weavers also weave other trappings of the nomadic lifestyle.
