It is a beautiful Soumak Kilim probably made by the Qashqai tribals that sell their goods at the Shiraz market. It has small geometric motifs that are placed linearly across multiple cross sections of the field. It has got a beautiful tenticular border that runs around all four sides of the carpet/rug. The wool used in the carpet/rug is hand spun by the weavers and the dyes used in the carpet/rug are obtained from natural substances. The colours mainly include orange, brick, brown, beige and tan. 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 Socio-Ethnographic conditions that existed at the time of making this are non existant today. These are extremely rare and sought after carpets/rugs.
This carpet/rug is readily available to ship.
