Whether from eastern Anatolia or northwest Persia, the rugs of the Kurds are known for their lush soft wool. This piece does not disappoint. Geometricized palmettes are boldly drawn and surrounded by a thin border with an oscillating ribbon design. The long braided ends are also noteworthy. While certainly indicative of a tribal origin the alternating color of the warps mimic a technique employed by fine Persian village rugs and textiles often using a silk foundation. This weaving is all wool but may have been considered just as luxurious to its tribal weaver.
