Based in Hebden Bridge, The Afghan Rug Shop attracts customers from all over the UK due to our unique items and fresh approach to home decor.
Every rug we sell is hand picked and shipped direct to the shop. Our rugs are sourced from the weavers houses and local markets in and around Mazar-e-Sharif, Andkhoy, Aqcha and Kunduz so the families directly benefit from the trade and the UK prices remain very affordable.
Started by James Wilthew, THE AFGHAN RUG SHOP in Hebden Bridge can call itself unique for several reasons. It’s the probably the only shop in Britain granted Label-STEP accreditation (guaranteeing fair and ethical trade in the worldwide rug business).
Aside from rugs and kilims, he stocks doormats, floor cushions, donkey bags, hats and scarves. A local upholsterer transforms kilims into everything from doorstops to wing-backed chairs, footstools and scatter cushions. And a leather worker also makes hand-stitched kilim/leather handbags and overnight bags.
We are open 7 Days a Week: 10am – 5pm
We are also open on Bank Holidays and by appointment out of hours.
