Creating a distinct sense of motion, reciprocal bands of ïsirga, a linked-pinwheel motif, cross the field of this Afshar sumak. The cotton white provides distinct contrast when paired with the madder red wool, and the alternating colors of the delicate cross elements enhance this sense. The piece is topped by multicolored flat woven fasteners and retains its original fastening loops.
