his beautiful kilim was made in Herat, Afghanistan, by the Baluchi tribes. Maldari kilims refer to the nomadic/semi nomadic shepherds who make these types of rugs. It has a repetition of geometric motifs running through the field of the rug placed in a linear pattern. It is a Soumak kilim with a unique structure where the wefts are used as design elements and not just for structural purposes. Soumak Kilims are generally superior in construction when compared to other types of Kilims. Both the Warp and weft are made of cotton while the Pile is made from locally sourced wool which are made from natural dyes. Colours include red, blue, white, orange and peach. As is the case with other tribal carpets/rugs, it is an extremely rare piece of art. This beautiful carpet/rug is a great addition to a modern or traditional decor.
