This bautiful Shahsavan Caucasian Kilim was made between 1930-1940 which makes it approximately 80-90 years old. The carpet/rug measures 6’6”x9’8” and is made with the finest sheep wool and naturally obtained colours that are sourced locally. The Kilim has a unique structure where the wefts are used as design elements and not just for structural purposes. This type of Kilim is called a Soumak Kilim. Soumak Kilims are genrally superior in construction when compared to other types of Kilims. The Kilim has three medallions with lozenge motifs inside them. The field of the rug/carpet carries geomtrical motifs. The colours include mainly brick, grey, beige and brown. The border has 2 headed chicken motifs spread through it. The Socio-Ethnographic conditions that existed at the time of making this rug/carpet are non existant today, making these extremely rare and sought after rugs/carpets. This carpet/rug is readily available to ship.
