Rows of bold latch-hook diamonds are drawn against the wide bands of red, green, and blue in this Caucasian kilim. Against narrower white bands, smaller scale geometric ornament and oscillating ribbons are used to balance the scale of the composition and to create contrast. Though achieved through a more linear design, this combination of bold graphics and pure color are the hallmarks of Caucasian Kazak pile weaving as well. Here we see the application of similar notions achieved in a banded flatweave.
