Rugs from Sauj Bulagh, a largely Kurdish enclave in the far Northwest of Persia, are known for combining elements of classical Persian drawing with a bold and vividly colorful village aesthetic. This Sauj Bulagh rug draws large scale floral elements organized in a lattice around a central rosette. Ultimately, this may be a local variation of the classic Persian all-over 'Herati pattern' popularized in the 18th century. However, the scale of drawing here is such that the design does not fully repeat and each element, or pair of elements, is uniquely rendered. The wool is soft and lustrous and the colors are luminious against a deep field which fades from indigo to deep walnut brown.
