Dorokhsh

c. 1900
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

Woven in the northeastern Persian province of Khoroan, this happy Dorokhsh rug is a celebration of paisley. Known as 'boteh' in Persian, this form is thought to represent a stylized shrub. During the 18th and 19th centuries, it was frequently included in the design repertoire of fine Persian and Indian textiles. Indeed, the format of this piece is quite reminiscent of an east Persian or Kashmir shawl. Rows of 'boteh' undulate against an ivory ground as if blown by a breeze. The border reinforces this theme by flanking large paisleys on either side of stylized leaves, themselves incorporating smaller pairs of paisley.
